Regarding the eleemnt() function, CSS3 Images says

"If the referenced element has a transform applied to it or an ancestor,
the transform must be ignored when rendering the element as an image.
[[!CSS-TRANSFORMS]]"

I think it's probably worth detailing what it means for a transform to be
"ignored". Should it be as if the transform property were 'none'? Note
that this would have some additional effects, since a transformed element
normally acts as a containing block for fixed-position descendants, for
instance (even if it's just an identity transform).
