Re: [fxtf-drafts] [css-masking-1] Is mask-type a longhand of mask? (#528)

The CSS Working Group just discussed `[css-masking-1] Is mask-type a longhand of mask?`, and agreed to the following:

* `RESOLVED: mask-type is not a longhand of mask`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;fantasai> ntim: I noticed that mask-type has a prefix mask-<br>
&lt;fantasai> ntim: it looks like a longhand of mask, but idk if it should be or not<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> actually "Animation type" is already a required line in Bikeshed<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: Looking at the dfn now I think it shouldn't be<br>
&lt;astearns> ack fantasai<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: The property is set on a mask *element* and says whether the mask is based on luminance or alpha<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: I think that's not an appropraite longhand for the mask shorthand<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> ntim: I wonder if th ename is appropriate, then?<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: It is - we dont' always have the situation where the prefix indicates a shorthand.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: I can't think of a different name<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: Also this is an SVG property so unsure we can even change it at this point<br>
&lt;miriam> q+<br>
&lt;astearns> ack miriam<br>
&lt;fantasai> miriam: I agree on intuition, mask- feels like a longhand of mask, but there are several mask- properties that are not part of the shorthand<br>
&lt;fantasai> miriam: so it's not a lone standout<br>
&lt;fantasai> ntim: even mask-border is part of mask<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: Yeah all the rest are on the element using the mask. This is the only one that's not that.<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: It defines the mask, not applies it<br>
&lt;fantasai> ntim: would prefer to rename if it's compatible, but seems maybe it's not?<br>
&lt;fantasai> astearns: Seems resolution is no, mask-type is not a longhand of mask<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> fantasai: I think mask-type is shipping in all browsers<br>
&lt;fantasai> astearns: could leave it open if people want to look into renaming, but doesn't seem likely<br>
&lt;fantasai> RESOLVED: mask-type is not a longhand of mask<br>
