For what it's worth, the relevant code in Firefox has the following comment:

  //XXXbz this function does not deal well with something like "foo
  //!important" as the aPropValue.  It will parse the "foo" and set it
  //in the decl, then ignore the !important.  It should either fail to
  //parse this or do !important correctly....

I would be happy with that.
