This is great, except that the 3D Transforms ED had no accommodating update and now clashes with the 2D Transforms spec. For instance, is ‘transform-origin: left bottom 20px’ specifying a 2D (left, bottom 20px) or 3D (left, bottom, 20px) transform origin?

Good point. I filed <http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=14647>

I'm not sure how to resolve this, other than invent a new syntax for transform-origin, or to break out transform-origin-z into a separate property.
