Shape opacity and filter effects

If a shape has both an opacity and a filter effect, what is the correct
rendering order?  

1.  Render the shape using the opacity as described in section 14.5, apply
the effect to the result

2.  Render the shape (ignoring the opacity), apply the effect, apply the
opacity to the output of the filter step.

I would expect option 1 on the theory that the opacity is a shape property,
so it should be applied when rendering the shape.
