Just an idea that was put into my head at some point and probably should be
archived here instead:

A common value that rolls back to the bottom of that weight level of the
cascade, e.g. for an author rule it would roll back to the end of the user
cascade, for a user rule it would roll back to the end of the UA cascade,
and for the UA it would roll back to ''initial''/''inherit''.

And would that be more, less, or equally useful as a value that simply means
''initial''/''inherit'' (depending on whether the property inherits by default)?
That idea was proposed by dbaron here:
