Standardize what behavior?  I don't believe there's any rule right now for serialization order of the properties in a declaration.  In David Baron's example, the style declaration has margin-left set, then margin-start set, and then finally margin-left is set again.  Some implementations may do an in-place mutation of the existing margin-left, and then an in-order serialization would put margin-left before margin-start.  Other implementations like WebKit always just remove the old property and a append a new version on to the end, resulting in a serialization order that puts margin-start before margin-left.

In other words, the serialization order you're seeing in that example is implementation-dependent.
