First just a comment: my goodness what an extraordinary number of things you've talked about -- I can imagine your heads must hurt. Thanks to the note-takers!

A couple of questions:

Is the discussion of compositing about enable background talking about removing enable background from SVG because it is tricky with HMTL?

That's not good, if so. 

Is the work on SVG Filters now separate from the work on compositing? I still have a few filter effects I want to request but I was planning to send them to Erik D. http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/IG/resources/svgprimer.html  has a lot of examples of filters and I've been writing a new chapter on that recently and have another bunch or so. I'd hate to have features removed right after I encourage people to use them. 

Is the implementation of 3D transforms only going to be done at the level of the bitmap and not to the actual geometry of the vectors affected? and there are accessibility reasons for applying SVG filters (that preserve geometry and not just bitmaps) to HTML content. (e.g. colorblindness)

Is there stuff that Porter-Duff can do that feComposite and feColorMatrix together can't? How about if you add Vector effects (to allow the Euler diagrams)? I was wishing today that feConvolve allowed things a lot more complex than a matrix of single values of odd (and small) order. Convolution is richer than that in the general case, I think.
