Yeah, good point.

linear-gradient(yellow, blue) - horizontal from top to bottom

To me, the next most important thing is that the examples below make  
sense:

linear-gradient(left, right, yellow, blue) - should be horizontal
linear-gradient(top, bottom, yellow, blue) - should be vertical

I'd suggest these are going to be by far the most common, so they  
should be simple to understand and make sense when read (aloud).
