At the end we don't position markers, but "gaps" in the stroke as 'stroke-dasharray' does. It is not possible to combine 'marker-pattern' or 'marker-segment' with these properties either, right?

It seems like that would be really awkward.  You'd have to set up a
stroke gap so that it exactly aligned with a marker, which may be at a
difficult-to-calculate location.

Also, note that marker-knockout is specified on the <marker> element,
not the element that uses the marker.
