Inheriting stroke properties from context

[was: Unified draft of SVG-in-OT]

Hi Nikos, good catch, thanks.

I was just expressing to Cameron offlist my hesitation about the user
agent style sheet allowing the context's stroke properties (width,
opacity, etc) to be used.

All: just so I understand this correctly: can font designers design their
SVG descriptions so that choose that strokes do *not* inherit the
context's stroke properties?
