The radial-gradient() function and the object-position property, at least.

I believe so. The transform-origin value type is different from that of  
background-position in that a third component value represents a position  
on the Z-axis rather than an offset to a preceding percentage/keyword.  
(<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012Mar/0195.html> has a  
resolution concerning this.)

That difference doesn't apply to perspective-origin, though, so that does  
seem to be an issue. Has been reported earlier here:
