I won't argue this. Great test Brad, and absolutely proves your point. I 
will add to use cases with this test.


The examples 'Grate 3' and 'Grate 4' require an extra inner element that 
is rotated by 2D transforms. Now if I wanted to have text running from 
left to right (not rotated), I would have to add an additional element. 
If I could use background-rotate, then I wouldn't have to jump through 
such hoops.
