You really don't.  "resolved value" is a legacy hack, defined just to
make it easier to talk about getComputedStyle().  It's incredibly
inconsistent; a handful of properties from 2.1 return their used
values, while all other properties return their computed values,
including ones that act similarly to 2.1 properties.

I agree that it would be great.  But it's not trivial. ^_^
