[Bug 11657] My worry is that this doesn't cover all the different kinds of textual transformations. Yes, it does cover obliqueness and weight, it does not cover letter spacing and other textual attributes that may be of some use to developers.

Strings or numbers.  Numbers would be canvas pixels, presumably (or maybe CSS
px).

Ooh, didn't think of that.  Inheriting from the <canvas> is an interesting
idea.  Either that, or no inheritance at all - all values are set to initial.
