Thanks. In fact my question is simple : will the coding changes to reach compatibility with other viewers and renderers affect the aspect of the already created works using filters, gradients and other features which causes problem ? Of course if doing some changes in filters numerical entries could help I would search actively how to do this, but if the  problem stays deeper in Inkscape code I can't do anything.

No, this affects all filters and more (although filters are the most
obvious as there the default case is different from what we do). In
fact, the first time I noticed the effect was with the gaussian blur
filter (I couldn't explain the difference between our rendering and
Batik's rendering, until I found these properties and verified that they
were indeed the cause).
