@Crissov, the skip token is something CSS currently does not offer. 
`inherit` overrides a value, instructing the element to take the 
[computed value of its 
parent](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/inherit). 
This is different than avoiding an assignment altogether. As @ausi 
demonstrates, it’s helpful to keep thoughts grouped together, which is
 part of why shorthands are [so 
convenient](https://twitter.com/tabatkins/status/608664528918700034).

Regarding the skip token being `*`, I haven’t had an issue with `/` 
being confused for division as it is used in CSS. Perhaps the Sass 
community had some issue, which would have now been resolved, as the 
prevalent use of the division character should have paved the way for 
a multiplication character.
