Thanks Doug, for raising this issue - yes, from a cartographer's/GIS point 
of view having intersection lists and methods exposed, would be very 
useful! It is important to most of the vector based spatial analysis and 
would allow building more complex GIS tools and cartographic interactivity 
around SVG.

On the other hand SVG 1.2 is already getting very big and I would rather 
like to see SVG 1.2 coming out soon and having 1.3 or 2.0 adding missing 
features. If we start adding more and more features we should really change 
to SVG 2.0 immediately and rather skip SVG 1.2.


I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.
