`transform` is about positioning an item in 3d space; you're talking about changing the way 3d space is rendered into a 2d surface. This is more akin to `perspective` than anything else (tho, `perspective` is implemented hackily as a per-element transform that just approximates the idea of perspective depth).

In particular, setting something as "facing" one of the six cardinal directions isn't enough to reproduce your examples, where there are diagonal surfaces, etc.

If I'm reading your examples correctly, tho, all the transformations *are* achievable as a rotate/scale/skew transform on the container, and then rendering isometrically?
