When I implemented getComputedStyle for shorthand in WebKit I totally
arbitrary follow the order that is in the spec, for example :

'border'
Value:          [ <border-width> || <border-style> ||
<'border-top-color'> ] | inherit

Even if yes this line doesn't say it should be the order. I believe
Firefox and Opera are doing the same.
