The fourth `<length>` parameter of the `box-shadow` property already allows to specify the size of the shadow. In the CSS Backgounds 3 specification you linked to this is called "spread distance".

The level 3 of the CSS Text Decoration specifcation did not have this spread distance, though [Level 4 does specify a spread radius for `text-shadow`](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-decor-4/#text-shadow-property) which means the same.

So from specification side there's nothing to change, only browsers and other user agents still need to implement the feature for `text-shadow`.

Here are some links to the implementation issues for the different browsers:
* Firefox: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=655590
* Chrome / Opera / Edge: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1226531
* Safari: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76997
