I would like to keep filter effect regions to be consistent with masking
or pattern. The most users know that they clip the results. But they
should just clip the end result of the primitive calculations. So that
you can move primitives forward and backward by feOffset without the
fear that they get clipped by the filter effect region during the

I agree. It's difficult to specify 'filterRes', if you don't know how
the viewer optimize the effects. This may also depend on the platform
(smart phone <> desktop).
