@mstange @dbaron @chrishtr @dholbert @bzbarsky To summarize: The CSS WG resolution stands: filters should establish containing blocks for abspos and fixpos with the exception of the root element (outermost root element in SVG terms).

The viewport is defined as a region and is no content itself nor does it describe a surface. The canvas is a (theoretically) infinite (unbound) drawing surface. We never filter regions but filters or filtered content might get clipped to regions. So I am not sure if the specification actually needs to differ between the filtered "canvas" or filtered "viewport".
In fact, I am not sure if we even need to reference the term "canvas". IMO all that is needed is the exception for: "The outermost document root element in the current document context."
* I am not sure if HTML/CSS has a term for "root" element that applies to SVG as well.
* document context is meant for embedded documents with `<foreignObject>`, `<object>`/`<embed>`, `<frame>` where the document root element is "within" those elements.

I welcome better prose proposal. :)
