Although this is another case of "everyone at this table knows what this 
means", for the spec to be well-defined CSS Masking will, like GCPM, 
need to define (or refer to something that defines) exactly how 
url(foo.svg#bar) is mapped to a single element.

* What is the base for relative URLs? (V&U probably already covers this)
* If the URL (fragment aside) is for another document, is an external 
resource fetched? (The answer here might differ for Masking and GCPM)
* What happens if the URL has no fragment?
* How is a fragment mapped to an element? (Not just IDs, but <a name> etc.)
* What happens if more that one element have that ID/name?

These issues are not especially hard, but they need normative statements.
