Yes.

Note that Mozilla's general opinion on the proposal so far is probably 
summarized in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=598609 and is 
that we think the order-dependence of such longhands would be a 
significant departure from how CSS properties work now and would be a 
serious pitfall for authors.
