That one was because there is legit visible differences between blur implementations, but *also* significant cost differences, but aside from looking slightly prettier/uglier the different algos didn't affect the rest of the page, so it was okay to just give reasonable bounds and let UAs do whatever.

That's not the case here, as the algo you use affect the geometry of the element, and can have significant effects in how things are laid out - whether a line is allowed to go between two parts of a disjoint shape from an image (especially when the gap approaches the size of the linebox), for example, is a pretty big and significant difference that authors will care about.
