AbsoluteOptions and ViewMatrix

When viewing any graphics such as:


AbsoluteOption works as advertised with PlotRange, but not ViewMatrix:

AbsoluteOptions[s,PlotRange]    (* give you the actual plot range, not
"All" *)

AbsoluteOptions[s,ViewMatrix]   (* give you "Automatic", not the
actual value *)

I understand that the actual PlotRange value is known to the kernel,
but not the ViewMatrix, which is handled in the notebook.

Does anybody know how to get the ViewMatrix value out of the Notebook?
