I'd prefer to avoid the term "deprecated", since that suggests the feature is
going to be removed at some point, which isn't the case.  HTML5 uses
"obsolete".  I'd go for a note like

"""
skew() with one parameter zero is equivalent to skewX() or skewY(), but if both
parameters are nonzero, it does not behave as a skew (despite its name). 
Authors might mistakenly think that skew() with two nonzero parameters behaves
the same as skewX() followed by skewY() or similar, which it does not, so they
are advised not to use skew() at all.  Nevertheless, implementations must
support skew() for compatibility with legacy content.
"""

Does anyone object to me making this change?
