I think there's a difference, though, between this : <rect style="stroke: black; fill:none;"/> (which really add any legibility at all) and this: <path d=" M 300.75 412.25 L 294.75 412.25 L 294.75 406.25 L 300.75 406.25 L 300.75 412.25 " /> which is much easier to read than if it were split up into attributes/elements. But, as you say, the debate is de facto lost anyhow. Far be it from the likes of me to criticize a Recommendation authored by the perfectly enmeshed (enmashed?) intellects of close to 40 people, some of whom may have been subtly influenced by the syntax of a certain company's proprietary language.
