Thanks again for your proposal.  I'm happy to report that the SVG WG
agrees in general with your extensions, and we will be integrating it
into our upcoming modules.  There may be some clarifications we'll need
to make, and we need to confirm some things regarding strokes and
bounding boxes, but on the whole we think it will be a good fit with SVG
and CSS.

We hope to work with the CSS WG on this and similar proposals, and would
ask that the CSS WG set aside some time at the TPAC to discuss how we
can coordinate going forward.
