Let me try to be a little more precise: I'm wondering why 'border-spacing' 
isn't a shorthand property for 'border-spacing-top', 
'border-spacing-right', 'border-spacing-bottom' and 'border-spacing-left'. 
Is there a reason why you can only have one value (applies to all four 
sides) or two (applies to horizontal sides and vertical sides, 
respectively) values? Why isn't it done in the same fashion as the 
'border-width', 'margin' and 'padding' properties, where you can have one, 
two, three or four values?

PS: In my previous post, I meant 'border-width', not 'border'.
