I don't have an example of my own, but I could imagine (for instance) a 
series of <surface> elements that are treated as separate from because 
there are visible boundaries between them, but which are contiguous, and 
a <zone> which would run over the boundary between two <surface> 
elements; you might want to represent the <zone> on the <surface> which 
contains the largest area of it, and capture the fact that it extends 
onto a <surface> to the left by using negative coordinates.

I seem to recall a discussion about this before. Did we not decide that 
if a path is not closed, it would be deemed closed as if the first point 
were re-iterated as the last?
