CSSMatrix has a different problem.  We probably want a single class
for matrices that's shared by SVG, CSS, WebGL, etc.  I don't think we
want separate classes for SVGMatrix, CSSMatrix, etc.

However, nothing in the transforms spec says that
getPropertyCSSValue('transform') should return a CSSTransformValue.
If it said that, then the interesting parts would actually be
testable.  That would be a step forward -- although if nobody but
WebKit wants to implement it, which so far seems to be the case, it
should still be removed from the spec IMO.
