I envisioning issues when filter effects are applied after user events 
like :hover. Dean mentioned :hover in the companion thread [1] (somehow 
this thread got split).

How does a coordinate transform API (if I using correct terminology) 
maps when a filter effect is applied with an event like :hover?

Are filters transitional? If so, how is any mapping and the timing of a 
transition (or animation) sequenced?

I believe that before anything is developed fully, much testing with 
animation and transforms must be done. Dean mentioned testing with 
animation on webkit-dev [2].

I can help with this (testing with animation and transforms) but I still 
trying to get one filter to work. The code in example 3 of 3.2.1 for CSS 
Shaders is foreign to me. For me I would expect to use something like 
this code.

filter: url(distort.svg#distort);

Also, is a vendor prefix required like -webkit-filter?
