I don't know that this solves the problem of it then sounding like 
"none" doesn't apply if there is a border-image.

The fact is that "none" doesn't set the style.  It controls whether 
there is a border at all.  So the right non-normative summary is:

   These properties control whether a border appears, and if it does
   what style it's drawn in.  A border-image will override the style,
   but not whether a border appears in the first place.

At least I assume this text is meant to be non-normative.  It's not 
actually marked that way, but if it's meant to be normative I'm not sure 
what it's supposed to really be saying in a normative sense.

Yeah, I'm not holding my breath.
