Not my head, but my hands after a day of minute taking. :)

They were always separate, I believe.  Compositing, since being split
out from the old SVG 1.2 Full WD, has never been published separately.
Filter Effects has been progressing as a joint SVG/CSS deliverable.  The
SVG Filters specifications is going away in favour of the Filter Effects
specification.

The way 3D transforms would be done in hardware would be to render the
SVG content to a raster, upload that as a texture, and then have the GPU
apply the 3D transformation to it (AIUI).  It's not clear to me what the
exact accessibility concerns with that would be.

Seems like it might be possible to implement the Porter-Duff blend modes
with those.  The blend modes probably not.

Not sure that would help.
