Ah, another good point. I might specify box-shadow for a general class  
("my-boxes") and an image-border on several more specific classes  
(such as "my-scallop-cornered-boxes"), and it would be convenient to  
do so without having to include "box-shadow:none" on all the more  
specific classes.

Fallback behavior is the biggest reason though, IMO.
