The property definition tables in sections 2 and 3 both state that  
percentages "refer to the size of the element's box". However, both  
'transform' and 'transform-origin' may apply to inline-level elements,  
which may generate multiple boxes.

(Safari doesn't support applying these properties on non-replaced inlines  
at all, but Firefox seems to transform the boxes individually, at least  
when line-breaking.)

As for block-level elements there's display:list-item which also generates  
more than one box (in this case it doesn't make sense to transform the  
marker box on its own).
