I think, barring any significant confusion, I'd have a preference for
keeping it shorter.

Also, since row-gap is shared with multi-col, it's theoretically possible
we might share this shorthand with something else in the future (though
I can't think what, other than tables, which already have 'border-spacing'
for this purpose). And in that case, having a slightly less specific name
is better.

Starting with grid- is especially good considering we've consensus so far
on resetting it in the grid shorthand. :)
