Two notes:

1)  Both implementations are prefixed.  So even if the above happens 
it's not the end of the world (and in particular, there are various 
other incompatibilities between how transforms work in Webkit and how 
they work in at least Gecko).

2)  No matter what happens with the spec at this point, the behavior of 
Firefox 4 for transforms is not going to change for the release, unless 
we find a security bug in them or something.  I clearly can's speak for 
the IE team, but they're at RC... which probably means this applies to 
them too.

So I agree we need to decide this; I don't think the IE9 and Fx4 release 
schedules are relevant to the decision.
