So does Gecko, and any SVG implementation that wants to not hang when it
encounters SVG filters created by a lazy author or tool. And of course Web
browsers always encounter content created by lazy authors and tools :-). I'm
looking at http://ejohn.org/files/ecma-cloud.svg again...

That's exactly why dropping filter effects regions would actually make our
code simpler, and ultimately would make every serious implementation
simpler.
