DOMRect should now be compatible with SVGRect, so SVG can start using it  
(or DOMRectReadOnly).

I added a no-argument constructor to DOMRect in  

The missing piece would be to alias the window.SVGRect property to  
DOMRect, but do we need to? Is there actually Web content that relies on  
the SVGRect constructor/interface object? (The same question applies to  
SVGMatrix also.)
