This is just about to be published as working draft with a notice pointing to css3-transforms.

Do you have edits which should be done before the WD goes out? We didn't see any more issues in bugzilla.

I think we should do one final WD of this, but it will take  bit longer, before migrating its contents into csswg/css3-transforms/

This is Vincent's combined spec, and I think should be the ultimate, all-singing all-dancing 2D/3D/SVG transforms spec.

I think this is now obsoleted by csswg/css3-transforms/.

The intent (resolved on, I believe), was that 2d-transforms and 3d-transforms would each
have one final WD with an obsoletion notice, after which work would go into the combined spec.
