I believe the test struct-use-207-t.svg test similar functionality.

In that test the top left corner gradient id exists in the referenced file
and so should select from the referenced file rather than the parent.

This test is similar - the context of the <use> is in the referenced

Whether this is in the spec. is another question altogether.
