If you're talking about the term "reduced" in the property name, I 
think we're mincing semantics. Disabling motion is a reduction of 
motion, albeit a complete one.

disabled` is ambiguous in the first place.

This argument is a straw man fallacy. The PR does not include 
`prefers-reduced-motion: disabled` but if the value were needed a 
later time, it could be an unambiguous `no-motion`.
