There's currently an `inverse()` method.

But it would be nice to also have a `transpose()` method. This can be useful, for example, for calculating lighting normals on scaled objects. Here's an example of the technique using a custom `m4` matrix library:

            // for correct lighting normals
            const worldInverseTransposeMatrix = m4.transpose(m4.inverse(worldMatrix))
            gl.uniformMatrix4fv(worldInverseTransposeMatrixLocation, false, worldInverseTransposeMatrix)

It would be great to be able to do the same with DOMMatrix classes.

There could possible also be static methods for creating common types of matrices, for example:

const perspectiveMatrix = DOMMatrix.perspective(fieldOfView, aspectRatio, near, far)
