That's correct. We could extend this in future levels. Or we may find that
getting the shape from a rendered background (with all of the positioning
that allows) is sufficient. I don't think this is required for level 1,
and I'd rather get some feedback from people using level 1
shape-from-image to determine what is required.

Sizing the shape from an image follows the Concrete Object Size Resolution

I'm not sure I follow what you're asking here. Are you thinking ahead to a
shape-positioning property (or set of properties)?

Thanks,
