I see, yeah, having `auto` as the initial value solves the initial 
values of new values, but it doesn't look to solve the root problem, 
which is, we're trying to shorthand that are implementation-wise 
related but use-case-wise or user-wise unrelated, and thus accidental 
reset can happen.

Let's say an English user installed an extension that sets `:root { 
text-decoration-skip-spaces: yes; }` since that is his favorite 
underline styles. This will be reset if a page wants to change `edges`
 or `ink` and used the shorthand. UA stylesheets may set `lang(zh) { 
text-decoration-skip-edges: yes; }`, or localizer sets `edges` for 
Chinese but developer may reset it accidentally.

On the benefit side, I don't see many cases where single author wants 
to set multiple values to single selector. If you have such examples, 
that'd help discussion.
