There was some discussion about them recently for the purpose of
translating XSL-FO to CSS, since XSL-FO allows them in the expression
language. I think there was broad support but some concern about
performance. For that matter I also wanted sqrt() and sin() and tan()
and there was much less support for that, even though circular displays
and also CSS 2d transforms make them more desirable.
