Doors an windows inserted into an opening should follow an agreement about positioning. The proposal is:

    * Doors and windows shall have a local placement, the local placement shall be relative to the opening into which they are inserted.

    * Doors and window should be located inside the first quadrant of the local placement with the insertion point of the door aor window at the origin.

    * The insertion point of the door andwindow is defined to be the lower-left-bottom corner of the door and window panel.
