Consider the attached test case. (You'll need Ahem[1] installed.) Opera, IE, and Firefox all disagree on how to apply the rotation, both in terms of how to determine which box(es) to apply the transform to, and which transform origin(s) to use.

I really don't think we should go here. If authors want to apply transforms to normally-inline elements, they should use display: inline-block.
