I don't think we need to be adding functional notation to distance  
measurements. I would require a whole new way yo tokenize the  
measurement, would not be backwards compatible with the way shadows  
work today (in WebKit, for instance), and offers no advantage over  
just inserting a space before the keyword instead.
