All right, I've rewritten the element() section:
<http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-images/#element-reference>.  Please let
me know if I've made any mistakes.

* Transforms on the element are now ignored
* The size of the image is now the "bounding box" of the element (do I
need to be more specific?  If so, how?)
* Pages are adjoined when calculating the size/appearance of elements
broken across pages.
* display:none elements, children of replaced elements, and general
non-rendered elements now represent the null image.
* defined a general notion of "paint source" which SVG and HTML can
use for elements that don't need to be rendered to be used as an image
(<linearGradient>, <img>, etc.)
