"similar to all other CSS modules"
That's a pretty blanket assertion.  There are times when I thought box-shadow should have "longhand" support but it doesn't.

Subject: Add longhand transform properties for ease of use

Has anyone yet proposed adding longhand properties to the CSS 2D Transform Module Level 3? http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-2d-transforms/

My proposal would encompass adding the additional properties to transform should be extended with additional longhand properties similar to all other CSS modules. Such that each of the supported transform functions would be accessible in a separate property, examples:

transform-scale-x: .3;
transform-scale-y: .6;
transform-rotate: 30deg;
transform-translate: 10%, 12px;
... etc ...

Is this the proper forum for such a proposal? And if this is not the proper forum what is?
