To be clear, I am not proposing any changes to getComputedStyle. I simply  
want to define it because a) the current definition no longer works due to  
CSS 2.1 changing definitions and b) browsers do different things. E.g. for  
'width' it's very easy to get three different results testing three  
browsers.
