No sweat. It's not my baby; I just didn't know what you were revering  
to.  AFAIK, none of the implementations have multishadow support for  
text shadow. Anyway, I agree with you about your other points. I  
believe they are working out the details for spread on box-shadow  
first (it is a relatively recent addition there), but I expect (or at  
least hope) to see it moved into text-shadow after that.

As for foreground color, I think WebKit might support that already  
(with a prefix). I agree it would be useful if it was supported by all  
who support shadows.
