Looking at the SVG link explicitly now, I'd have to say that's pretty
horrible.  It's useful for an implementor, but has literally zero
useful information for an author.  Reading that, I have absolutely no
clue what this filter actually does, how it does it, or what the
effect is of the values I can provide it.

The only way to be more author-hostile would be to have just provided
raw source code.
