@dirkschulze Yes, exactly.  A filter with an unspecified colour should use `currentColor`, so in that sense it's the initial/default value (and glad to find the browsers are using it consistently now; they didn't use to!).

But that's not the same as "the initial value for interpolation", which needs to be equivalent to `none`. 

Perhaps a better name would be the "null value for interpolation" or "no-effect value for interpolation", or just simply "the value equivalent to none".  Certainly, the automatic link on "initial value" isn't helping to clarify anything.
