So close.  'border-color' is what you're looking for.

CSS _is_ a standard styling language for HTML (and for XML for that matter),
and has defined 'border-color' since 1996.  It has certainly been implemented
since IE4:

An interesting concern.  Was there something in particular that made you think
this?

It is my understanding that members of the HTML working group not only use
HTML, but also endeavor to make(keep) it easy to use/author, and easier to
implement across a variety of devices.
