http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-transforms/#three-d-transform-functions
says that, for rotate3d():
  # If the direction vector is not of unit length, it will be
  # normalized.
Yet http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-transforms/#transform-property
says:
  # Computed value:     As specified, but with relative lengths
  #                     converted into absolute lengths. 
which means that this normalization is not applied to the computed
value.  Given that it's not applied to the computed value, when *is*
it applied -- and why does it even matter to say that normalization
happens?  Or was it intended that the normalization apply to the
computed value?
