There is no argument from me that this would technically work, btw. But why 
should we use - or would want to use - the UA stylesheet to work around an 
initial value that is incompatible with existing content? That's the part 
I don't follow given how regularly we choose initial values (or define an
initial auto value) to ensure compat with existing content. What's so specific 
about these properties that this should not occur here?
