Microsoft implementation of CSS Filters?

I just recently came across a Microsoft article talking about 
"the four most popular uses of CSS" [1].

I'm very surprised by their examples, since I can't seem to
find any documentation of these properties: filter, shadow,
blur, wave, glow, etc.

I'm aware of the Note that was recently mentioned on this list
by Chris Lilly, but that note does not contain any documentation
of syntax, only a few examples of proposed extensions to CSS
for future levels.

The Microsoft article does not link to any formal documentation
nor document what type of "CSS" they presume these properties
are a part of.

I'm shocked that we're already seeing vendor extensions to CSS.
Microsoft's promise of obeying the Web Pledge and not releasing
unapproved extensions seems to be a very shallow promise indeed.
