OK. Yeah I guess you're right.

My idea with this split was that we could reuse the machinery from  
CSSStyleDeclaration for descriptors in e.g. @font-face. I still think this  
can make sense for @font-face since descriptors and properties are similar  
enough that they could be represented with the same interface in CSSOM.

For now I've reverted the changes for CSSStyleDeclaration and let  
CSSPageRule.style and CSSMarginRule.style return it.
