I believe @frivoal is right, `currentcolor` would be the desired 
fallback for foreground properties like `color` and `border-color`, 
but `transparent` would be more appropriate for `background-color` 
etc. Using `black` (or `white` or `transparent`) everywhere would be 
harmful in more cases. What you really want is something like partial 
`inherit` or `default`.
