Same. We can’t really agree on the definition of a visual effects without understanding and agreement of what it should look like (see spread vs. scaling discussion).
And it sounds like current implementations may not allow us to figure it out.

Unlike Brad though, I am somewhat sensitive to what SVG, canvas et al. do. It would not be helpful to authors mixing HTML and SVG to have to juggle multiply/divide
by 2 depending on the node type just so they get the same rendering. At least we should have a good reason for the difference.
