Is this universally true?  

At least our milling machine mills the outline on the outer edge of the
lines.  The guy who runs the machine says, he cannot easily tell the
programm to mill along a center line.

I prefer to keep the line width within tolerances to both sides, so if
the fab ignores my README specifying the centerline, it is no big deal.
