Moreover, in CorelDraw, there is a line property that determines whether
the line scales with the image or not. So whatever default one would use
(were it possible within LO Draw), one would find a number of people
having the opposite opinion. The rule of the thumb we had when
reverse-engineering and implementing the filter was to provide as good
as possible static conversion. That means that we are trying to find a
way to scale the width of a line in cases where the width is scaled in
CDR by different ratios for x and y axes and so on. We were always aware
that the result will not be perfect in all cases, but it will be ok in
most of them. That was our vision then :)
