... that has been discussed so far.

Are you suggesting we guarantee that "no future property of CSS shall have a grammar which allows both <percentage> and <length> in the same location unless <percentage> follows a set of rules defined in section ___."

I'd prefer to see that section written before going down that road of assumptions.  Especially since something like SVG is sure to break it in the future, if not already.
