Using the constructor:

var m2 = new Map(m1);

However, adding a constructor to CSSVariablesMap is somewhat
complicated.  You'd have to provide an associated style rule, and we'd
have to keep all the associated CSSVariablesMap objects up-to-date
live, as opposed to now when there's only a single dedicated one.  I
presume that makes it easier.
