Hi Dirk,

do you think this makes sense? It seems like the model are very different
(painter's algorithm vs css box model) so the solution will most likely not
be the same.
Or is it your intention to describe masking generally and then say how it
applies to SVG and HTML like we did for the compositing spec?

I think's Tab's -element() syntax will be more compatible with masking than
what SVG currently has.
