== Resolving colors ==
This is a proposal to resolve the lack of a generally usable 
definition for how colors, and in particular `currentcolor` are turned
 into computed values, used values, inherited...

This should help address #741, #480, and #867 (and maybe other issues 
I am not aware of).

If we agree on the concept, we should probably try to backport the 
relevant subset of this to css-colors-3. I can do this as an update to
 this PR or as a separate one, as the WG / editors prefer.

I have for now left undefined (and marked as an issue) the computed 
values of the functions that are not yet implemented. We should have 
that discussion as well, but it need not delay the introduction of the
 general concept and anchoring terminology.

For the functions that are implemented, the definition I provided is 
based on my observations of current inter-operable behavior.
