RE: Image rendering - telling the browser to TURN OFF anti-aliasing.

The image-rendering option doesn't do a thing, yet. (in FireFox ESR 31.4.0 or IE 11.0.9600.17633).

If, at some point, this has the effect of 'do nothing but affine transforms' then once its supported by all major browsers, We will be good.

<image x="100" y="200" width="300" height="150"  preserveAspectRatio="none" transform="translate(0,200) scale(1,-1) translate(0,-350)" 
" />

Yeah, the existing image-rendering values <> already address this - set "image-rendering: pixelated;" and you'll be fine.

At least, per spec.  This should absolutely apply to fill patterns; they're equivalent to CSS background images, which this property definitely applies to.
