For example, in my case, one of the things I wanted to be different is border-radius. Are we going to also add things like border-top-outside-radius?! That would be ridiculous, wouldn’t it?

Not necessarily.  That's likely how we're going to solve the logical
directions problem for the box properties (just introduce
margin-inline-start, etc., plus some way of figuring out whether you
should pay attention to the logical or physical directions).  Adding
another set of top/bottom/inside/outside is a logical extension (and
we should make sure that whatever we come up with for the logical
directions extends nicely in this way).
