_I'll add something that may be interesting for other Illustrator
It looks as if Illustrator calculates the canvas and viewbox sizes (they
are identical if you save the SVG with the "use Artboard" option) as the
size in px of a 72 ppi preview. This is regardless of document settings
(I use mm) and raster Effect settings (I use 300 dpi).
This means that I will _never_ have "clean" coordiante values in my
SVGs, try what I may, unless I decide to work in relation to 72 ppi all
the time (which would be absurd, and not only because of the "i" part of
the unit).
