The value <shape> [1] used for 'ellipse', 'circle' on radial gradients is in conflict with the definition for <shape> in CSS2.1 used by the 'clip' property [2]. Note that other specifications like CSS OM [3] do assume that <shape> is defined as in CSS2.1.

A simple renaming of <shape> should do it.
