nobody's saying that. what they are saying is that your proposed solution is 
not appropriate.

hm. see, i suggested a way to make this better. you did a bunch of work that 
could have been used to do that. yet you didn't. you instead decided to go off 
and do your own things despite being told _in advance_ that it would be 
accepted. you then went and committed those changes anyways, twice. this would 
all be made much simpler and everyone would be at least bit happier with the 
non-opaque svg's being given a background colour when there is no compositing.

can we get back to actually improving things in ways we can all agree on 
instead of this useless bikeshedding? it takes a small amount of cooperation, 
but then we all win.
