== [cssom] Define serialization of specified values with more detail ==
Serialization of computed values is generally governed by applying the shortest-serialization principle to the computed value. It's a bit handwavey, and there are some exceptions, but overall it works.

But specified values do *not* seem to serialize according to the SSP in general; instead, they seem to usually retain more details of what the author originally wrote. Sometimes it's literally the original text, sometimes some light modification is done. (For example, Chrome sorts the 'contain' keywords specified, but doesn't combine them into shorthands like it'll do for computed values.)

I suspect there's a lot of non-interop around this, but we should have more details at *least* on general principles, even if we don't have all the weird specifics.
