Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-ui][html] Layering concerns for 'appearance' (#3526)

My comment above used to be in the pull request, but I moved it here since it's more a question about the general approach than about the details of the PR. Over there, @zcorpan said:

As far as I can tell, there's a generic logic which applies to most widget types, and a few are special cased. We can continue to define in the css spec what you do in those special cases, but frame the rest generically, and let HTML own the full list. Wouldn't that work? Potentially, we could even simplify further, as we don't seem to have many different types of special cases, but just two buckets: those where we care about authorProps and those where we don't. We could just define these two buckets here, and let HTML define the full list and say which widget goes in what bucket.
