I agree with the action from the F2F (below), that the mesh element should
support objectBoundingBox units.  However, I wonder whether it wouldn't
also be useful to support viewBox/preserveAspectRatio similar to how they
work on pattern tiles.

This would have two benefits:
* you could define a mesh effect that scales to fit the referencing
element, without having to define every point in decimal numbers.
* you could control aspect ratio of the paint separately from the
dimensions of the bounding box, so that for example circles don't always
get stretched into ellipses.
