Yes, the misrender still occurs. If you generate Steiner points to draw the ellipse and get the corresponding Bezier points to draw the curve segments with, the ends of the elliptical arc look similar to the Cairo transformed arc. If you use unequally spaced points but equal angles to draw the arc then the ends work out OK but the arc has flat spots on the ends when flattened so it doesn't look real good.

For a wide arc or ring I would tend to draw the outline and then fill. A wide line elliptical arc does have some strange ends though when flattened.
