<shrug>.  I have no idea.

I thought SVG used to have a section describing how external resources 
should work, but I can't find it in the unsearchable under-linked mess 
that is SVG 1.1 right now.  And it's obviously not in 1.2 Tiny, since 
that doesn't have external resources.

I can't make sense of those two sentences, sorry.

Right.

> Mask does not affect hit testing, but clipPath does (the only resource). But it does not expose this region without the interaction of the user (move mouse over clipped region).

It doesn't affect the behavior of Document.elementFromPoint?

It doesn't affect the mouseover/out/move events UAs (well, not WebKit, 
perhaps, but UAs that are trying to actually update hover state sanely) 
fire when the mouse is stationary but elements move?

P.S.  If you haven't seen it before, I highly recommend reading 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2008Sep/0112.html for the 
sort of attacks you get when combining features...  Are you sure mask 
does not affect hit testing?
