I'm not sure where the "maybe" comes from, given that there are previous 
posts on this very list saying that z-index works on transformed 
elements in Presto, Gecko, and IE9.  As in, everything that implements 
transforms _except_ WebKit.

I'm fine with the decision assuming the spec is actually clarified 
accordingly, since every single implementor who read it thought it meant 
that z-index should apply to transformed elements, but I really hope 
other decisions actually take mailing list discussion into account better...
