Not sure if that can be easily implemented on all platforms (since some graphics libraries and some HW accelerated need a maximum size anyway).

Sure but the browser already knows what the actual visual bounds are and can use that.

But my main concern are percentage values that always need to be resolved to to one of the boxes on mask-clip. Sometimes you want them to be relative to the whole group.

What percentage values are relative to the mask-clip edges?

Relative values on SVG for example:

<svg width="100%" height="100%">

Which is very common on SVG, since these are the default values.


For your shadow example we have filter-box.

That's a bit counter-intuitive for people who simply don't want the mask to be clipped.
