@simlawr That solution would somewhat cleanly solve the current issue regarding the `-gap` properties, as authors can easily understand it.
Though I believe it doesn't scale because it means that for every new property that is shared between different contexts, there needs to be an alias introduced only for the purpose of feature detection. That burdens authors, as they have to remember the aliases when doing feature detection, implementors, as they have to implement the aliases only applying in certain contexts, spec. authors because they will have to remember to add those aliases when the property is used in different contexts, and documentation writers because they will also have to cover those aliases.

Unfortunately, I don't have a better solution for this. There is probably no automated way of doing this kind of feature detection.
