Both the SVG and FO spec avoid even talking on how url(#stuff) should
be interpreted if the SVG is embedded in a FO document. Actually,
the whole semantic of embedded content is processor dependent, in
other words we could do what we see fit. Therefore, as I said, this
is spec conformant, read: no bug. I agree that it violates user
assumptions on how the whole mess ought to be resolved. There are a
few hurdles on the way which prevent simple fixes on the FOP side
