There are inconsistencies in the examples in "3.10. Backgrounds Shorthand:
the‘background’property", specifically regarding the background-repeat
property's value: examples 15 and 18 are different to the other examples.

Example 18 shows multiple comma separated values for the background
shorthand and describes the values assigned to each individual sub-property,
using this example:

    background: url(a.png) top left no-repeat,
                url(b.png) center / 100% 100% no-repeat,
                url(c.png) white;

It explains that for background-repeat, this means:

    background-repeat:     no-repeat, no-repeat no-repeat, repeat;

I think it should be:

    background-repeat:     no-repeat, no-repeat, repeat;

If not, then why not?

This is the shorthand expansion, not the computed value, so the computed
value (which is "no-repeat no-repeat, no-repeat no-repeat, repeat repeat")
should not be relevant here and serialization would naturally collapse back
to "no-repeat, no-repeat, repeat" anyway (quotes used only to delimit value
from prose!)

Both of the expansions shown in example 15 have the same issue.
