This case that was discussed in the telcon was this one:

http://perso.telecom-paristech.fr/~concolat/SVG/radial_gradient_construction_animation_edge_case.svg

And there are three fill modes where we need to define what the 
behaviour is.  For spreadMethod="pad", I am not sure that the average 
colour is what makes sense.  The last stop colour is probably better 
here.  For spreadMethod="reflect" and "repeat", average colour does make 
sense if we want to choose a solid colour to fill the other half-plane, 
since that's what's converged on as you reach the straight line that is 
tangential to the points on the circles where they touch.
