But no-one's shipped with "box-shadow" or "border-radius" yet, so we could
change the names without breaking actual content.

And there are good arguments for 'border-shadow' instead of 'box-shadow'.

I don't mind either way, as long as the Brad's "disable box-shadow when
border-image is specified" proposal is not adopted with the name unchanged.
