There is also another issue which wasn't solved with svg filters. See bug #1429591. At one time after 0.91 they became to work very differently (particularly those who contains blur and turbulence) because they were designed at a smaller scaling than the new one. The only workaround I found was changing document properties/scaling to 3,7795 before designing anything inside the document or creating and use a template with this setting.

On the other hand I was somewhat disappointed to see that in recent years nobody seems to be interested by the svg filters area in Inkscape. The work we did Nicolas Dufour and I several years ago didn't receive any return, positive nor negative. Most bugs weren't fixed and the Filters dialog has even became a mess despite several UI proposals.

I think what Eduard is saying is that the user interface is currently
insufficient to self-contain the functionality that we have set up.

Requiring excessive external support is an indication that we might
have to reconsider the design. Even if the reconsideration requires us
to think deeper about the problem.
