One thing that Abobe did well - they added a Composite tag to their SVG 
output.  This is something I would like to suggest the SVG working 
comitee consider adding to the spec.  Essentially, it lets you do 
brighten, darken, multiply, screen and all those useful Abode overlays 
without having to have all the overhead of filters.  If you want to 
apply a pixel tweaking effect that could be described by geomerty (ie, 
have a circular area fade to blue, add shadows that tint rather than 
obscure, brighten a region defined by a path, or make a rectangular 
region monochrome, a Composite is a great, easy to implment and memory 
saving technique over filters.
