Thanks for the report.

I believe this part of the specification did not get updated along with 
other parts of the specification as the SVG working group worked out the 
functional details of the various elements.

The overriding general rule is that when feImage references an SVG element, 
then it is supposed to act like a <use>, which I believe would mean that 
the <g> does *not* scale to fit.

I'll make sure that the SVG working group studies this one carefully before 
the SVG 1.0 Recommendation is posted.

Will do.
