Having a `margin-mode` property would go hand in hand with the current proposal of `margin: relative 1em 2em 3em 4em;`, i.e. be another longhand property for `margin`. The disadvantage of this is that its value infuences the handling of the other values, which might be unexpected.

I totally agree with @chharvey's [comment](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/1282#issuecomment-296493530) that `!relative` (or `!` for the same reason) and `margin-relative` have downsides.
