ASV3 supports Adobe private namespace extensions and has support for
the attribute 'adobe-blending-mode'.

That blending mode attribute supports all 13 of the blend modes
proposed in the compositing chapter.

A simple s/adobe-blending-mode/comp-op/ makes the content compatible
with what was proposed for 1.2.

The test examples work perfectly in ASV3 if you edit them and go:
s/comp-op/a:adobe-blending-mode/g
(assuming you've declared the Adobe private namespace
as xmlns:a="http://ns.adobe.com/AdobeSVGViewerExtensions/3.0/".)

So, it should be trivial to check the equations using ASV3. Illustrator
emits content that exercises the blend modes quite easily.

Verification should be simple enough.

I'll refrain from commenting in regard to the Porter-Duff operators...
