Forgive my plain speaking, but please let it be `-width`. It is a burden on authors new and old to have to remember inconsistent naming for similar concepts. We should not have to try to recall which properties use `-thickness`, which use `-weight`, which use `-width`, and which use whatever we come up next year for the next property needing to describe the stroke width of a line. 

In case I miss a meeting where we discuss this again, please recall my urging for `-width` (`text-decoration-width` and for all future  values measuring the thickness of lines). It is too late to go back and change border-width and outline-width and border-image-width to something else, and consistency is important.
