Hi Carmelo,

Thank you for the suggestion. I believe CSS variables were proposed
a long time ago:
 http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-css-potential#pgfId=1029312

I think it also appears here:
 http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/NOTE-CSS-potential-19981210#id00256283761

I am not sure what the status is of such a proposal in the CSS WG.
You may want to contact the group at www-style@w3.org.

Thank you,

 - Ian
