SVG `transform`s not applied to `clip-path`s correctly

Recommended Posts

Affinity Designer appears not to import the following SVG correctly: the `transform` on the `g` element is not being applied to the `clip-path` on the `path` element.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<svg xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" version="1.1" viewBox="0, 0, 200, 100" width="200" height="100" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <clipPath id="c1">
   <path d="M 50,5 5,50 50,95 95,50 Z"/>
 <g transform="translate(50, 0)">
  <path clip-path="url(#c1)" d="M 20,20 20,80 80,80 80,20 Z" fill="blue" stroke="red" stroke-width="5"/>

I tried to find how W3 spec says these attributes are supposed to interact, without success. However, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Sketch, and Graphic all applied the transformation to the nested `clip-path`, and I did not find any other applications that matched the behavior of Affinity Designer.
