Hm, my inclination is for horizontal to go first. Properties w/ four 
values like margin, padding, and border-* go clockwise around all four
 sides—the vertical then horizontal shorthand is merely a truncated 
version of this—whereas properties that deal with x / y coordinates 
(e.g. background-position) are horizontal first.

Then again, `grid-area` is a whole new order that doesn't really fit 
either of those paradigms. So maybe matching `grid-area` (vertical 
first) makes sense in this context.
