Alias -webkit-transform related CSS properties
We should alias the following -webkit- prefixed CSS transform properties to their standards equivalents (either via CSS Unprefixing or otherwise) in Gecko. -webkit-backface-visibility -webkit-perspective -webkit-perspective-origin -webkit-transform -webkit-transform-origin -webkit-transform-style WebKitCSSMatrix is also related, but is tracked in Bug 717722.

Bug 837211 added support for -webkit-transform, -webkit-transform-origin and -webkit-transform-style. We probably want to add in aliases for -webkit-backface-visibility, -webkit-perspective, and -webkit-perspective-origin. Does that sound reasonable dholbert?

(In reply to Mike Taylor [:miketaylr] from comment #1) > We probably want to add in aliases for -webkit-backface-visibility, > -webkit-perspective, and -webkit-perspective-origin. Does that sound > reasonable dholbert? tl;dr: yes. Longer: Sounds reasonable, if there's data to show that websites actually depend on them. And I think we're using the list of properties that Edge supports (linked in comment 0) as a proxy for such data. So, since these properties are in that list, it does seem reasonable to add -webkit prefixed versions of them.  (MS says "Our support (or lack thereof) of prefixed APIs is data-driven with compatibility as the sole purpose for any that remain. As examples, -webkit-border-radius is still in use on over 60% of page loads [...]" http://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2015/05/06/a-break-from-the-past-part-2-saying-goodbye-to-activex-vbscript-attachevent/ )

(Note: These properties are all defined in https://drafts.csswg.org/css-transforms/#property-index , which is why they're grouped together here, despite their dissimilar naming.)
