I'll note once more that FF isn't following the spec either[1], so it  
shouldn't count as a reason to keep the currently specified syntax.

(It seems to be more like the 2009 CR[2], except it still allows  
'content-box' to set background-clip, even though that was not allowed in  
that spec version.)

I'll note that Transitions and Animations currently allow non-connected  
*-duration and *-delay properties in their shorthands. There are issues  
noted about a possible alternative being "/" as a connector, but  
<time>{1,2} is not mentioned.
