You still have to define interactions with the non-dynamic properties; 
for example, does |padding-start| override |padding-left| or does it 
override |padding-right|?

It seems like it would be easier to have something like |direction: 
auto| where the |auto| keyword automatically reverses all literal left 
and right properties and values.
