Sign not dropped from negative arc radiis
According to the spec for out-of-range parameters negative radiis should drop there sign. Firefox doesn't do this and instead drops the arc. In the attached testcase the left arc should look the same as the right.  http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/implnote.html#ArcImplementationNotes
While the implementation notes state that negative radius values should be handled (ie, set by the DOM), the BNF for path data states that only non-negative numbers are allowed in the attribute: http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/paths.html#PathDataBNF

IE, Chrome, Safari and Opera all seem to accept the negative radius in the path data. I think we should accept it too and amend the spec.
Yeah, I think that's what we should do.

Any update on this? As far as I can tell there's no response to the w3 issue.
It's clearly the right thing to do, so I just made the change in the spec: https://svgwg.org/svg2-draft/paths.html#PathDataBNF
Just noticed that arcs were the only user of ParseNonNegativeNumber so the method itself can go.
