EPUB behavior is tied to early working drafts of CSS specs.  As with all
CSS working drafts they are subject to change, including this property. 
This issue should be decided based on whether combining transforms would
restrict future behavior or not and *not* on what EPUB has or has not
included in their spec.  There is absolutely no obligation that the CSS WG
support a specific syntax in a specific *working* draft!!
