ISSUE-2235 (4x4-matrix): Consider using 4x4 matrices over 3x3 [Module: Transforms]


Raised by: Doug Schepers
On product: Module: Transforms

* I suggest you stick with 4x4 matrices over 3x3. I wouldn't let the  
fact that OpenVG is 3x3 (is it? I read this in the minutes but didn't  
check) impact the decision. Cameron says that "general 3d effects are  
not useful" - maybe I misunderstood that? I guess I'm unclear as to  
the goal: is it to add a transforms capability that is compatible with  
OpenVG? If so, why? Or is the goal to add simple perspective  
transforms to SVG?

I'll also note that Apple has shipped a mobile product that supports  
arbitrary 4x4 matrix transforms applied to SVG content since about  
July last year.
