Hi Sylvain,

I asked you a question. Perhaps I was not clear that I did not intend
it to be a rhetorical question. Perhaps the question itself was unclearly
worded, because it referred to a proposal first presented in a different
email. Let me combine the relevant texts and be clear:

The following question is not rhetorical, and I am requesting an
answer from you, Sylvain Galineau:

Would appending to the paragraph:

    # It is not defined what these transitions look like, but a gradient
    # is recommended for color transitions that don't involve dotted or
    # dashed borders.

the following text:

    | The start and end color stops should be given by the line segments
    | connecting the tips of the inner radii with the corresponding tips
    | of the outer radii, and the halfway point between the start and end
    | colors should align with the transition center defined above. Conical
    | gradients are recommended for gradient color transitions.

sufficiently address your concern about the spec's underspecificity, or
is there some other detail that you require?

To be extra-clear, I will note that this question is multiple choice, and
the choices (afaict) are:

   a) Yes, it sufficiently addresses my concern about the spec's
      underspecificity with regards to border-radius gradient color transitions.
   b) No, it does not sufficiently address my concern about the spec's
      underspecificity with regards to border-radius gradient color transitions,
      because I require additional detail(s) in the spec.
   c) No, it does not sufficiently address my concern about the spec's
      underspecificity with regards to border-radius gradient color transitions
      because although the detail is sufficient, the strictness of the UA
      requirements is not.
   d) No, it does not sufficiently address my concern about the spec's
      underspecificity with regards to border-radius gradient color transitions
      because I require additional detail(s) in the spec and because the
      strictness of the UA requirements is insufficient.
