Again, we disagree.  They are not obviously different from each other.

Two fields, in the same location of the same functional syntax, with the same role.

Assertion:  Should not have opposite effects.

If you'd like to split linear-gradient into...

linear-gradient-with-direction(27deg, red, blue);
linear-gradient-that-starts-from(left, red, blue);

...then your approach makes more sense to me, and isn't inconsistent with itself.
