@Loirooriol If there's a shorthand that can set both physical and logical values, e.g. suppose we extended `margin` in such a fashion, then whichever longhands are omitted (not set explicitly) should be set first so that the explicit values reset whatever is necessary. So if someone specifies `margin: relative 1em` then we set the logical longhands last so they can win against the physical ones. If we always set physical last, then setting logical values in such a shorthand would be impossible.
