This seems like the best argument to me. It doesn't make sense to
require developers to try to do this calculation, and plus it means
that they'd almost certainly have to use code, not static markup

Of course...but maybe it could be simulated with a "fake"
implementation in pure JavaScript that shows what the end result might
look like visually?

Even code that doesn't execute would be useful, though.
