I'd note that CSS 2.0 (1998-05-12) also had vertical-align,
text-shadow, and clear in the list; the last CR of CSS 2.1
(2009-09-08) retained vertical-align.  Gecko at least implements
something for vertical-align, though I'm not sure what.  Part of the
rationale for allowing other properties was that the spec used to
list other properties.
