100% agree + border-color with border-style transitions would be also
interesting to see
in this case.

In principle if we feel need of non strictly rectangular shapes for
DOM elements then it should be more generic solution -
some property that will take polygon/path - not just corner parts.

Otherwise we will end up with border-corner-shape,
border-top-shape, border-right-shape,
inner-border-corner-shape, outer-border-corner-shape, outer-border-right-shape,
- the whole zoo.
