I could swear we discussed this and agreed these would be treated
as unknown property names in this context. But a) I can't find 
traces of this in minutes or the archive and b) recent discussions
about this pattern in css3-fonts and its possible treatment in
css3-values make me wonder what should happen.

Given:

 transition-property:color,inherit,margin;

...recent Chrome and Firefox builds treat the declaration as invalid
and compute the property's value to 'all' (its initial value). 

IE10 currently preserves inherit and treats it as an invalid property name.

I suspect css3-values means to define this in a generic manner though I
can't tell where it does so at the moment.
