Yeah, that is just an illustration of the fact that it is not defined 
anywhere.

In general each point on the curve at the corner belong to both borders 
(or at least inherit attributes of them).
Slightly dashed and slightly dotted sounds like "slightly pregnant" for me.

Or does CSS allow such state? If "yes" then how. If "no" then also how. 
We cannot just be silent about it.
If it is undefined then we need to say so clearly and to provide any 
reasonable fall-back. I personally
do not see any other options other than treating corner curves as having 
solid color always.
But that's me, AFAIR someone here said that they have a solution and
current rendering in Mozilla is just a bug. So asking.
