We don't need to specify anything in particular - the perspective is taken into
account when the element is drawn, then it's flattened into an image and drawn
into the referencing element, which can then go and do its own transformations.

element() isn't <use> or something like that, where you get to pretend that
you'd just substituted the referenced content in place of the reference.  It's
just a way of using an element as an image, and images are flat and don't
interact with transforms where they're used.

(For SVG, I recommend allowing 3d transforms in <pattern> - there's no good
reason not to, since <pattern> is very similar to element().  But this should
be discussed somewhere not-here. ^_^ )
