-webkit-appearance:button for arbitrary elements (deprecated)

Changes -webkit-appearance:button to work only with <button> and <input> buttons. If 'button' is specified for an unsupported element, the element has the default appearance. This is a follow-up of https://chromestatus.com/feature/5070237827334144

All other -webkit-appearance keywords already have such restriction. We should expand it to 'button' for consistency.


'button' keyword will work only with <button> and <input type=button/color/reset/submit>.
