Consider a property 'foo' that takes two values and is therefore  
represented by a map. Consider then that CSS changes over time. The CSS WG  
decides that 'foo' will now be a comma-separated list. To remain backwards  
compatible it will need to expose both a map and a list. That is the  
reason I gave it two different accessors. I am open to other solutions.
