Right. If I remember correctly, it was noting how the various plane
implementations all failed to account for total wp_viewport/view
transformations correctly, or in some cases at all.

I think that's a better option. I'll look at making
plane_state_coords_for_view fail for anything but crop/scale, and then
leave it up to the users to check for crop/scale if they need to.
