It's not guaranteed to be correct, though, since the spec does not
define where the 'outline' is drawn:
  http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/ui.html#dynamic-outlines
(with the intent that it could do things like include overflow).

However, I think such a test might be considered "close enough"
to determine what implementations do in this case if you include
both the top and bottom outline to make sure that they're adjacent
(and thus presumably immediately surrounding the border-edge).
