I haven’t cared about the transform (or animation) specs at all. I took a first look at the combined spec right now and I’m wondering:

Why is it 

  rotate(α, tx, ty)   or   rotate(α)


  rotate3d(x, y, z, α)

i.e. reversed order of angle and origin – or more generally: why are 3D functions not mere extensions of 2D functions with additional z parameters?
