I propose changing the 'normal' value to 'auto':

  | It should also be renamed to 'auto', as 'auto' means "self"--
  | which is a connotation you'll want in CSS3. It also means
  | "automatic"; the content and behavior associated with the
  | element is "automatic" instead of manually specified in the
  | style rule. In contrast, 'normal' here means little more
  | than 'default', and it implies that any other value is
  | "abnormal". ;)
  |
  | If the WG still feels 'normal' is more appropriate than 'auto',
  | I would *really* like to know why. *formally requests a reply*
