Thanks for the follow up :) Yeah, I'm quite concerned about adding even
more values to this completely under-speced CSS property as well.

We're already divergent on some aspects of "none" (see
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=82692 and
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80159), and I would love to see
some progress in the CSS WG before we proceed with the implementation of
this new value (would be fine if the consensus was to add a new value; I
just want to make sure other browser vendors are well informed).
