getBBox() for a circle with radius 0

What should getBBox() for a circle with radius r="0" at position 
cx="50", cy="50" return? I would expect {50,50,0,0} (x,y,width,height) 
but both Firefox13 and Chrome19 return {0,0,0,0}. Reading chapter "7.12 
Bounding box" [1] of the SVG Tiny 1.2 specification I could not find any 
pointers for why both x and y end up as 0.

Am I missing something or is this case "underspecified" in the spec?
