A long time ago (in April 1996, i.e., before CSS1), I proposed to add
drop shadows to CSS, but as an addition to border style[1], rather
than a separate property. The advantage is that you don't need an
extra property. The disadvantage is that the syntax becomes a bit
cumbersome...

I like it and I'll propose it to the CSS WG (again:-) ). Let's see
what they think...
