Web Inspector CSS sidebar:
When decreasing/increasing value from "0" to another value, add "px" unit.

Example: (| means cursor)
body {
    padding: 0|;
}

ALT + Up arrow key

Expected result:
body {
    padding: 1|px;
}

There is no way to do this unambiguously. The user could prefer ems or some other numerical unit.

"px" is the most commonly used unit, so I can see why would somebody want that.

However, it's not very straightforward to implement. For

   z-index: 0

we don't want to append "px". `z-index: 1px` isn't a valid CSS.
To implement this properly we'd have to understand the context.
