The way I see OpenRaster is more like a toolkit to build raster file format.
But as far as, Open Raster (long-term) Archiving is concerned, only the core
functionnality are allowed, and for extension (like filters not available in
the core), then providing a rendered version of the filter will be
That said, I have started a list of filters I would like to see in
version "1.0" of core filters :
(it's mostly the list of SVG filters plus a few addition).

But I would love to see those buffer standardized as well (even if they are
not part of ORA). I am pretty sure users would want to import GEGL-variant
OpenRaster files in Krita as well (and possibelly the other way arround too),
