Something in between, I suppose. Some other related properties were also  
considered. Did a brief re-visit just now, looking at IE9, Firefox nightly  
and 3.6, Webkit dev, Opera and Opera Next:

text-transform: applied by IE
font-style, font-weight, font-family: applied by all
font-variant: applied by IE and WebKit
text-decoration: applied for 'inside' only by Fx3.6 and Opera Next (seemed  
to make some sense but we'll probably revert this now that we're the odd  
one out)
letter-spacing: applied by all except Fx

Maybe this could be represented by a set of UA declarations on ::marker?
