As a simple case, how does 'filter: url(#invalid)' behave?

I believe per SVG spec and in the Gecko implementation it makes the 
element the invalid filter is applied to not paint at all, right?

For this one, I guess the question is whether it should have behavior 
that's the same as the simple case or different behavior...

3) Follow the SVG spec.  ;)
