All,

we were looking at how resetClip [1] could be implemented in WebKit.
Looking over the Core Graphics implementation, this feature can't be
implemented without significant overhead. I also found an email from 2007
where Maciej states the same concern. [2]

Since no browser has implemented it, can it be removed from the spec?

Rik
