:link and :visited color are also user preferences in Firefox, but the spec
still gives the expected defaults in case the user didn't specify a preference.
 If the user wants to change the default rendering, they could install a user
stylesheet and decide that p should have margin: 0, but that doesn't mean the
spec shouldn't say what p's expected margins are.

(I don't know why these preferences even exist in Firefox if the "Allow pages
to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above" box is unchecked,
by the way.  On most pages they'll either do nothing or make the page illegible
if the author can set their own colors.)
