As per SVG, SVG paint servers are not affected by effects on ancestors.

If you're talking about the element-as-background extension, I haven't
written down a proposed spec for that yet. But when I do, it will also
ignore clip, opacity and other effects on the ancestors of referenced
elements. Is that surprising? I can't think why you'd want it any other way.

the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
