No, I'm just pointing to what CSSOM currently says.

At what point different properties resolve their different values is
defined by the individual properties, and has nothing to do with gCS()
in general.

For bugwards compat and sanity, top/left/bottom/right have to have
special interaction with gCS(), as I outlined in my proposal earlier
in this thread.
