thanks for this information - that's a bit annoying from the PDF spec ...

could I alternatively use smaller units (f.e. points instead of mm?)?

I tried that but while Batik and ASV accept other units fop seems to not accept 
units defined within the "stroke-dasharray". Fop would stop and 
say "The 'stroke-dasharray' property does not support point values."

anyway - maybe I can try the scaling alternative now ...
