After discussing this with @fred-wang and @mrego, I think that we agree that we probably want the values list to be just 

```
none | [capitalize | uppercase | lowercase ] || full-width || full-size-kana | math-auto | math-bold | math-italic | math-bold-italic | math-double-struck | math-bold-fraktur | math-script | math-bold-script | math-fraktur | math-sans-serif | math-bold-sans-serif | math-sans-serif-italic | math-sans-serif-bold-italic | math-monospace | math-initial | math-tailed | math-looped | math-stretched
```

That's more in keeping with what is there today, it's one less character to type, and it doesn't get us into a whole host of other questions about why is it a function, what does the function produce and so on.  Ultimately this is really just a name that identifies the transform, I think, and unless we want to start tackling the thing at the end of section 2

> Note: A future level of CSS may introduce the ability to create custom mapping tables for less common text transforms, such as by an @text-transform rule similar to @counter-style from 

And try explaining these in terms of those then I don't think there is a need for more.  But, I also don't think that's necessary or maybe even desirable because of what/where this sits?
