getComputedStyle() returns a string of the form "matrix(...)" or
"matrix3d(...)" in all cases.  Very possibly this isn't desirable,
since it means resolved and computed values are different.  But it's
what all browsers do, quite interoperably.  (IE10 seems a bit
aggressive in returning matrix3d(), and Firefox until just a few days
ago added "px" where it shouldn't have, but that's about it.)  Is
anyone really interested in changing behavior when we already have
*four* independent interoperable implementations?
