Same as `color: currentColor`. 

> A note RE: the parent value, since background-color is not inherited, if the card background is lightblue, and one wanted to use `currentBackground` on a child element, they would have to set its background to `inherit`. Not ideal but workable. It would be nice if there was a way to grab the first inherited background in this case. `closestBackgroundColor` maybe?

Maybe time to revive https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/2864 ?
