Bug: AbsoluteOptions does not work with ViewMatrix

The documentation states that

"With the setting ViewMatrix->Automatic, explicit forms for the matrix m 
can be found using AbsoluteOptions[g,ViewMatrix]."

http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/ViewMatrix.html

However,

AbsoluteOptions[Graphics3D[Cuboid[]], ViewMatrix]

gives

{ViewMatrix -> Automatic}

This is the case even if the graphic has been rotated before using 
AbsoluteOptions.

This is just one of the many graphics options in v6 which do not work 
with AbsoluteOptions.  For many v6 options implementing AbsoluteOptions 
may be problematic, but I believe that ViewMatrix is not one of these, 
therefore this is a bug.
