If we’re serious about the separation of content and style, 
`text-transform` should have no effect on the characters, i.e. code 
points, *copied*. They may be changed permanently when *pasted* if the
 target environment does only support plain text. If it works this 
makes no difference for users. 
`text-transform` performs glyph changes in a *script*-specific way, 
`font-variant` and its sub-properties perform glyph changes in a 
*font*-specific way – they’re not different regarding user 
expectations.

The same is true, however, for `content`, `display` and `visibility` 
properties.
