The Complement of an EllipticArc is the EllipticArc between the ToPoint and the FromPoint of the original EllipticArc that creates a full ellipse when combined with the original EllipticArc.  The Complement maintains the same FromPoint and ToPoint as the original EllipticArc, but has the different IsMinor and IsCounterClockwise values.
