Add new basic element for stars and regular polygons

State:
RAISED
Product:
SVG 2
Raised by:
Doug Schepers
Opened on:
2009-05-16
Description:
For simplifying hand- and script-authoring, we should add a new element to allow the creation of stars, regular polygons, spirals, and other shapes. Dr. Olaf suggests the <polar> element, and has a sophisticated proposal for how it would work. This would allow for very mathematical (and visually appealing) shape representation.

My early proposal:
