Actually, display: initial is equivalent to display: inline.
<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.html#display-prop>  A magic value
meaning "ignore all author rules and use whatever the UA stylesheet
says" would be very useful, but it's not what initial is.  As far as I
can tell, initial is only useful for certain weird cases like
border-color.
