ISSUE-2059 (stroking rectangles): behaviour for  behaviour for stroking rectangles [Last Call: SVG 1.2 Tiny ]

in T.10 9 Basic Shapes 
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGMobile12/changes.html#shapes
is noted:
'Changed the behavior of stroking rectangles (esp. with rx values) back to the 
1.1 full behavior to keep consistency.'

If we look in the chapter 9 
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/shapes.html#RectElement
we find:
'Perform an absolute moveto operation to location (x,y+ry), ...' etc

In the previous CR we find:
'perform an absolute moveto operation to location (x,y+ry), ...' etc

If we have a look into SVG 1.1 
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/shapes.html#RectElement
we find:
'perform an absolute moveto operation to location (x+rx,y), ...' etc

This does not really look like 
'Changed the behavior of stroking rectangles (esp. with rx values) back to the 
1.1 full behavior to keep consistency.'

Is this an accident or can someone explain, how this improves consistency with
1.1?  ;o)
