Re: [css-cascade] Naming "value of a declaration", renaming "specified value"

You have computed values in terms of specified value in property definitions:

"Computed value: as specified"

With Tab's suggested change to "cascaded value" you can say:

"Computed value: as cascaded"

Otherwise you would still need the another equivalent to the  
'specified value' term, right?
