Re: [css-masking] Reverse naming change for 'mask-type' and 'mask-source-type'

> Hi,
> I would like to change the name of ‘mask-source-type’ back to ‘mask-type’[1][2]. Blink and WebKit have been supporting ‘mask-type’ since late 2012. And Chrome/Opera and Safari ship with the property. I underestimated the use of ‘mask-type’. Use counters in Blink actually demonstrate a stable usage for a longer period of time (even though still minimal)[3]. Not supporting the property anymore could mean that content is not displayed correctly. I probably should have communicated this much earlier and more strongly. I am truly sorry about that and admit that it was my mistake.

I renamed the type properties from

mask-type to mask-operation,
mask-border-type to mask-border-operation,


mask-source-type to mask-type.

I am open for better suggestion for mask-operation and mask-border-operation. For the time being, they seemed to be ok.
