I spoke with the Edge team and there is indeed content created with Edge that
uses skew(). The skew() support will be removed completely in the next preview
for compatibility reasons to FireFox 14 and most skew() usage is already
removed in the current version.

Even if not happy, I am fine with adding it again.
