Actually, we've been working with mozilla to get blending supported.
See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=952643
It is working really well using software compositing (including the
overflow:hidden problem). We have plans to add it to their compositor which
should improve performance but we haven't had the resources.

Well, I said we never bothered to add them for CMYK (except in Photoshop).
All our applications support them for RGB workflows.
I do believe that they are more popular in pixel applications (such as
photoshop, after effects and premiere) but less so for vector applications
(such as Illustrator and Photoshop)
