Mozilla removed support for skew() from Firefox 14.  We've received a number of
complaints of broken sites:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=734953#c20
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=747637
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=771180
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=775046
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=775710
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=775763

There are probably many more that weren't reported.  All reasonable uses of
this function are completely redundant to skewX() and skewY(), but people are
using it.  IIUC, some version of Adobe Edge even outputs it.

Mozilla is most likely re-adding support for skew() to Firefox 15, or 16 at the
very latest.  We would like the spec updated to require skew() support again,
matching all browsers, probably with a note that the feature is retained for
compatibility and authors should use skewX/skewY instead.  Any objections?
