Hi Robert,

This is an official response from the W3C SVG Working Group.

I have been assigned to look in to your inquiry about the 
feDisplacementMap. I will discuss this issue with the working group over 
the next few weeks and provide a resolution to your issue. Currently 
members the working (myself included) are quite busy with SVG Open 
preparation and I apologize in advance for not being able to provide a 
resolution sooner.

For your convenience the issue has been placed in our public bug 
tracker. The bug number is 4919. You can track the progress at: 

Kind Regards,

Anthony Grasso
