Start position of grid not specified

while working on "logarithmic axis scale"  in the ODF TC we noticed,
that positioning of grid is generally different between LO and Gnumeric.
Gnumeric has a position independent of the minimum of the axis. LO
starts grid always at the minimum of the axis. Example: currently for a
major-interval=2 and min=-2.5 LO gives grid position -2.5, -0.5, 1.5 and
for min=-1.5 LO give grid position -1.5, 0.5, 2.5.
It would be nice to determine the grid position for to get -2, 0, 2
independent of minimum value.
I can imagine of a new style attribute chart:grid-anchor where you can
set a value (0 for linear scale e.g) or "start" (to get the current
behavior). But as this would require additions in the code, I will not
suggest it to the TC without your OK.
Currently the spec has no rule for it, so both LO and Gnumeric are
"right". But for interoperability it is a bad situation and the spec
should describe the grid position.
