nsSVGEffects::UpdateEffects is meant to be called when changes to an element that is using SVG effects (e.g. CSS property changes) cause its frame to start/stop referencing (or reference different) SVG effects frames. Calling it when the referenced resources change is wasteful, so we should stop doing that. FWIW we didn't used to do this. The use of nsChangeHint_UpdateEffects was added to nsSVGFilterProperty::DoUpdate in bug 458493, and to nsSVGMarkerProperty::DoUpdate in bug 472135.
