Not necessarily. For example, some API's (eg. SGI *GL) assume z=0 for 2D
primitives using a 3D library to render. Not exactly "complex". I fancy,
at some point in the future, there will be some overlap. Not that I mind
that, however, although it is sure to create headaches for those trying
to map documents between the two.
