I agree with Alan.  Lacking even an idea for a proposal for switching
the percentage behavior of <position>, I don't want to force us into
using <position> and require people to write SVG just to get a shape
positioned with its left edge at 50%.  I'm happy to use shape() for
this in the future, and I can accept putting it in level 2.
