I don't think we should return the computed value, given that no browser implements it like that.  Given that Chrome is resolving `<number>` to a pixel-value, I don't see why it can't do the same for `normal`. It's fairly straight-forward to implement if you look at the links @emilio posted above. I don't see why it would be more complicated to implement in Blink.

I don't see any strong reason why Firefox/Safari should change their decades-old behavior that implements _literally_ what the CSS2 spec says. I'd prefer that Chrome implement the spec instead.
