What if elements within element()[1] have 3D transforms? How would perspective
interact with other content in HTML?

For SVG I plan not to allow 3D transforms for pattern, gradients, mask and
clipper, their childs and referenced resources of the childs. At first they are
used by a 2D shape anyway. Beside pattern, all other operations are 2D anyway.
Pattern could have 3D transformed childs, but we would have to specify
perspective of a pattern in combination with perspective of the referencing
target element.

The amount can be to hard to specify and in my eyes impossible to overlook in
the short time we have left to get to CR. And it is maybe even harder to

For this reason I would suggest to ignore all transform functions with 3D
content on elements when they are in the rendering context of element().
