I don't think your suggested tweaking actually accomplishes what the query asked. It merely moves the axes origin to the rear, left, bottom corner of the plotted surface. Thus it accomplishes the purpose only if the entire surface is in the first octant. You can see this most clearly if you change the x- and y- plot ranges to: {x, -Pi, Pi}, {y, -2Pi, 2Pi} The entire plotted surface is still in front of the xz- and yz- planes.
