I think the Fill and Stroke module has incorporated all the text from the
SVG Strokes module (with additional changes), so SVG Strokes as a separate
spec is effectively discontinued.  It should probably be replaced by a note
pointing to the new spec.

As the spec gets more advanced, we can probably discuss deferring some
features to a Level 4, based on implementer interest.  I don't see a
purpose in doing that pre-emptively.  If we remove the features now, we're
definitely not going to get implementer interest.

Can you explain what you mean?  If you mean "mix" as in "mix-blend-mode",
I've got an issue for that here & I think it's just waiting on someone
drafting up the text & filing a pull request:

If you mean "mix" as in mix up the paint-order (fill 1, stroke 1, fill 2,
stroke 2), that's something I've discussed previously in SVG WG but without
getting a final proposal.  It would need to be implemented as an extension
of `paint-order`, since browsers already support `paint-order`.  You could
start the debate by filing an issue that describes what is possible in
