>> Regarding to feDropShadow. The current specification text is talking about the color of the shadow. Don't we need to define new color and opacity attribute? Similar  to feFlood it would be dropShadow-color and dropShadow-opacity.

Sorry for the confusion. I was more talking about the CSS property 'color', not the content. But I forgot that 'color' can really make a difference (e.g for color: black; flood-color: currentColor;)
'fill' would mean that feDropShadow can take a PaintServer (not only color, but also gradients and patterns) and I don't think that this would be very useful. 'flood-color' would be ok but I wouldn't use it, because the name associates that it belongs to feFlood. What about 'shadow-color'?
