Ass? Is that a verb?

Anyway. Why? What? How? text-indent does indent, margin does margins,
padding does padding. How and why do you want to 'standardise' these? 
They are different things doing different jobs. The whole point of CSS
is rather than having vague things like <spacer>, you build up elements
using properties each dealing with different things. This is redundant
and pointless.
