Since we want to expose "used values” and “active values" by CSS OM - why not let currentColor always get the same color that a “active value” property or function would return? I mean we should not differ between currentColor with “sanitized ‘color’” and another one. Just always use the  “sanitized ‘color’” for currentColor.

Ok, but you don’t think it is “silly” if we break currentColor sometimes?

Beside that, you broke currentColor less than a year ago when you (actually the CSS WG) changed the behavior of it. I don’t think that WebKit or Blink have ever updated the behavior since then. Therefore, it is already broken.
