Re: [fxtf-drafts] [filter-effects-1] What is the visual effect of filter() on the document element?

@smfr The thread comes to the same conclusion as @tabatkins’s proposal above and does make sense IMO. I agree with the conclusion that some kind of backdrop is required for compositing which should not be affected by filters either. (Though might be relevant for feBlend of course.)
If we change that, we need to define a default solid backdrop color. We run into the described issue (opacity and so on) and disallow any new UA to actually let the background of the UA shine though. (Not sure if that ever will be desired but who knows in times of AR.)

With defining `background` on the root element there is a way to descibre the desire to invert the background as well for authors.

Though the voting on the Twitter thread might go in another direction, the outcome in the thread makes the most sense IMO.
