Perhaps we could support assigning an SVG filter directly (as an object)? Developers would be responsible to load them if they're external. Adding yet another network API that's a thin layer on top of some CSS syntax seems a little hackish. I'd prefer if we exposed filters at a lower level somehow. -- https://annevankesteren.nl/
