So it sounds like you really want access to the "used color", right?  I 
have no problem with whatever canonicalization we want for used colors, 
or even computed ones.  I'm just not convinced that _specified_ colors 
should be canonicalized.  That would lead to all sorts of weirdness like 
.style.color not matching the string that appears in 
getAttribute("style"), for example.
