At least we're clear on what the two options are. If this is the
only complaint about the current definition, then I think we've
made a lot of progress on this feature! As for whether the blur
value should match definition A or definition B, we've got two
options:
   1. Push the issue to the CSSWG and get a decision there
   2. Have Brad draw up some diagrams showing both interpretations
      for an offset shadow and a glow and post the question to
      css3.info / w3.org/bog/CSS / twitter as a survey.
