OK thank you for clarifying.

There was another question in my original mail:

Since we’ve established that the animated value of the transform
attribute does not change, it is OK for a ‘mask’ element to be animated.
I still wonder, though: what does it mean for a ‘mask’ element to be
animated with ‘animateMotion’?
