I think the intent is clear but I'm not sure "repeated values are
invalid" follows explicitly from the spec wording.

The issue came up in the context of 'font-variant-east-asian'. The
latest Webkit builds accept 'font-variant-east-asian: ruby simplified
ruby' but Firefox rejects this as invalid so the results differ.
