This I believe will need to be standardized with a 'none' and a
not-'none' value. The others were not successful. No idea wrt
spec status, Tantek's supposed to be dealing with this module.

These were deferred to CSS Text L4.

This will be replaced with a spec defining the use of SVG's
'stroke' properties when applied to CSS. Also, text-shadow
with a spread value (coming in L4) can have the same effect.
