Related issue raised on Firefox because of interop failures: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1531890

That issue is about `clip-path` property applied to a *child* of a `<clipPath>` element, and I'm confident calling that a Firefox bug — but I agree that the spec could be clarified.

For this issue (`clip-path` property on the `<clipPath>` element itself), I agree with Dirk that it is less clear what *should* happen.  Both Chromium and Firefox use the original element's user space for the secondary clipping path ([test case CodePen](https://codepen.io/AmeliaBR/collab/fd314d690be3c48a72b238d695db395e)), and that is consistent with the spec describing this structure as an intersection of the two clipping paths.  But it still needs to be made explicit.
