 Hmm it's not really a choice WP has made, if you need to state top right
 and bottom and if left is to have the same value as right then it's poor
 coding to state the lefts unit when CSS allows for inheritance of values
 when not explicitly stated, so this isn't a choice but the way one should
 write values; WP in this sense is simply following accepted practices - a
 good thing!

 So I can see postcss is quite smart, but it is still only a automated
 tool, historically CSS has never been a language that can be dealt with
 this way, as smart or smarter that postcss might be it is still not going
 to be aware of the full cascade a site may be handling thus it can't know
 if I'm having to declare all units for a specific reason.

 Lets ignore this though for the moment and focus on your @todo items
 earlier as then this can be committed and linting to these new rules can
