[cssom-view] 6.1 getBoundingClientRect with SVG content


The description of getBoundingClientRect for SVG content does not
match what IE and Firefox have implemented. In SVG the getBBox method
[1] excludes the stroke of an object, whereas the implementation of
getBoundingClientRect in both IE 9 and Firefox includes the stroke. I
believe there is no way to get the stroke extents in SVG if
getBoundingClientRect won't do it.

Should the specification change to match what's implemented?

Best regards
