ISSUE-2182: Consider adding new interface for easier use of positional properties

new evt x/y

Consider adding new interface for easier use of positional properties

State:
RAISED
Product:
SVG 2
Raised by:
Doug Schepers
Opened on:
2008-11-17
Description:
One of the most common hard problems that SVG authors face is getting the absolute coordinate position of an event, adjusting for transformations, nested SVGs, and viewBox factors.

I suggest a new interface on 'event', getPosition(), which would have as properties the adjusted x and y, the CTM, and the other factors that went into the calculation.

This would make creating related content much easier (things like drag&drop code, map coords, etc.).
