   Hmmm... I guess not.  However, if we're going to introduce constraints,
we'll have to come up with something.  This notation is simple compact, and
doesn't introduce a single new property, all of which were prime motivating
factors behind its devising.  Is there a solution which allows as much (or
more) expression of constraints without resorting to creating a huge number
of "-min" and "-max" property variants, and will still not chooke the
current crop of browsers?  (Using workarounds to "hide" constraint styles
from browsers is okay with me...)
