Display origin transforms for DRC reports?


I'm looking at display origin transformations for DRC reports.

With the 5.1.x branch Pcbnew, the DRC report dialog box message texts contained the Cartesian coordinates of each flagged item. It appears that the 5.99 branch no longer displays the coordinates of DRC items. However, the Cartesian coordinates are still listed in the report file. Unlike the display in a dialog box, this report is persistent and could be passed to someone using different display origin settings.

1. Should these coordinates be reported relative to the page origin, or
   transformed per the user-selected origin and axis directions?
2. If the coordinates are transformed, should the report include the
   user settings?
