Actually, because CSS3 implements the same functionality as the canvas element
(which makes me believe that the canvas element becomes redundant then), I have
suggested the same functionality to CSS3.

Please find the current discussion at:
"comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets", "CSS3 Transformation Suggestion:
Add additional perspective version to 3D transformations"
- or -
"http://groups.google.com/group/comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets/browse_thread/thread/389a6a51be2ad903"



In the course of that discussion it became clear that the name "perspective"
and "3D" don't meet the actual goal of this function.

In fact the function prototype I'm suggesting is more general 
than the other canvas transformation function.

With the suggested transform method it is possible to map all existing basic
transformation functions - the translate as well as the scale, skew and rotate
function, all into one single function.

So I suggest to call it something global like "transform" then.
