Just to note again, Mozilla's implementation did *not* ship yet. It will be in Firefox 70. See https://bugzil.la/1567282.

I personally now think, "width" would be better for consistency reasons, though I'd be fine to stay with "thickness", too.

I assume, most authors nowadays are using IDEs, which have autocompletion of property names, so that should mitigate the problem, anyway.

As [Christoph mentioned](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/4138#issuecomment-517195456), there might also be a property specifying how wide a text decoration line protrudes the text at some point, but I believe authors rather associate the "width" of a line with the thickness due to the other properties using that word.
