CSS3 UI "resize" property

I'm not sure how to reconcile the following two statements:

    With regard to interactivity and the Document Object Model (DOM), the resize
    factor on an element lasts the lifetime of the element

    however, if the 'resize' property itself is altered (e.g. via pseudo-class
    change or via DOM manipulation), then the resize factor is reset to 1.0.

If a node is removed from the DOM tree (such that the document is no longer one 
of its ancestors), does it still have a meaningful computed style?  It would 
seem that it does not.  If so, then how is the second statement to be 
interpreted in view of the first one?

I feel that for this to be implementable interoperably without consultation 
among UA authors it needs to be much more clearly specified.
