Hello SVG-strokes team,

Thanks for your work to develop this recent draft.

I would like to re-open the discussion about supporting the ability to
define the stroke width separately for each subpath along a closed path.

The stroke width for each subpath would be non-negative, and at least one
subpath's stroke width would be greater than zero.

My application Valentina (valentina-project.org) could use the ability to
set narrow seam allowances along an armscye curve, and deep seam allowances
along a hem. I am also working with AYAB <http://www.ayab-knitting.com> and
others to develop knitted patterns.

We are trying to break open the fashion industry with open source tools and
open data formats, and remove barriers to entry into a very sick fashion
industry.  It would be superbly fantastic if SVG supported stroke widths
per subpath. This will help us define patterns in non-proprietary formats
so that anyone can be a designer or a manufacturer in the 2nd biggest
industry on the planet.

There may be additional applications for this feature, but even if
patternmaking were the only beneficiary then the impact would still be
tremendous.  Everyone on the planet wears clothes.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to email me.

Again, thanks for your work with SVG specs.
