indeed so

You _could_  add an attribute "relative=true|false",

as i suggested

why so? the problem is that when I see "ulx=10 uly=24" etc I dont know 
how to interpret it. If it is not there I don't care.

if they are missing i have no info at all about where this surface is, 
either relative or absolute. inheritance wont help me.
