Actually, I think it would make it less likely, because when the
border-width gets very large, the 3D effect becomes less realistic.
You and I know that it's typically two bands of color, so we want
a thicker border to make those bands obvious. But while that makes
it more obvious to us because we don't have to look as hard, it
makes it less obvious to someone else that this is a correct
"groove" border.
