This seems similar to the transform-origin property from the Transforms

I believe Anthony is gathering up the issues that have already been
discussed in the FX TF regarding harmonising SVG and CSS transforms, and
I am not sure whether a solution to “the transform-origin problem” has
been proposed/accepted yet.  (The problem being that SVG elements need a
default of “top left” while CSS needs “50% 50%”.)
