may be this tutorial on SLD/SE1.1 with deegree3 is useful (it has been 
built at the time of FOSSGIS 2013 in Switzerland):

Like GeoServer, deegree3 is a WMS/SLD OGC reference implementation, but 
in 2013, it was also compliant with Symbology Encoding 1.1 (SE) which is 
part of the replacement of the deprecated SLD 1.0. Moreover SE1.1 does 
offer few new capabilities, especially transformation functions 
(interpolate, recode, categorize).

Of course, GeoServer does offer interesting additional "vendor 
capabilities", but if you want portrayal interoperability, then you 
shall not use them. Nonetheless, these are often relevant capabilities 
which are currently taken into account in the current on-going redesign 
process at OGC, although it is quite a slow process, unfortunately.

If you are interested in this redesign, there is an article "/Redesign 
of OGC Symbology Encoding standard for sharing cartography/" which tries 
to summarize some of the major ideas to build a sustainable next 
generation SE standard (https://peerj.com/preprints/2415). Feel free to 

Hope this can help you.

Best regards,
