That is a good argument to stay on that difference. But - when opening
and we have the possibility by doing this using the same filter as when
inserting - wouldn't it be better to use that and additionally 'break'
This would lead to the same 'open' behaviour, guarantee SVG looking the
same despite of insert/open, deliver better quality and reduce number of
filters to maintain to one.
Just my 2ct...
