Because there is no connection between the two? :)

There is no hard requirement for value keywords to exclude existing
property names (or vice-versa), afaik. Though it's quite reasonable to
avoid it to mitigate unnecessary confusion, which one might argue is
possible here. Also, now that property names can be used as a value for
transitions you could end up with the same value being a property or a
keyword depending on where you write it.

Honestly can't think of a good alternate name though. clip seems pretty
decent for this. 

This may all be moot as Tab is considering putting this switch in a
different property.
