Hi,

We know about the object bounding box definition. But how exactly will the
following elements map when they're using objectBoundingBox units:
mask, clipPath, pattern, gradient, (filter)?

I.e. in  this case:

<g clip-path="..">
shape1..
shape2..
</g>

Will each shape get clipped individually with the clip-path or will the
group specify the bbox for clip path so that each sub-shape gets clipped
with a part of the clip-path? Does the same rule apply for gradients, too?

I am a bit confused as as such, this would lead to a lot of bbox
calculations during rendering thinking on huge nested groups and such or is
there any short coming solution thought of?

Appreciate,

mfG / Regards,
Alexander Adam
