dojo/dom-style should have a consistent interface

As for now, domStyle.get returns values as provided by the browser. For example, it will return the border color in rgb format for most of the browsers, but not for IE8.

I don't necessarily consider this a bug, but I think that the result returned by this method should be the same in all the browsers. Having a consistent interface is one of the main points of using a framework.

It would be nice (or even necessary) to convert the values that differ across browsers and strictly define the output value that is expected.

While this gets implemented (if you decide it's a good idea to do so) you should update your documentation to make the developers aware that the values returned by domStyle.get may defer depending on the browser.

In addition, the tests for domStyle don't perform really useful assertions, this should be improved as well.
