I understand.

Suddenly, I am getting more concerned about a more general and
underlying issue wrt reserved keyword values.

I relied on 'border-width: medium' to be '3px' in a bunch of reftests.
Now, if I cannot rely on such equivalence, then :( I will have to redo a
bunch of reftests where, in some tests at least, it will not be
sufficient to just replace '3px' with 'medium'.
