Thanks ! I expected you would have sent a note about this but
couldn't find it in the archive.

I would expect translate() to be used much more often than matrix()
by most authors; however, having both <number> and <length> makes
the design of a useful DOM helper interface such as the specified
CSSMatrix a bit more complicated; or limited to px.
