... but they are main concerns :)

And I have indeed found on occassion that a change like Gregory suggests  
would help me in writing shorter, clearer style sheets. So I would like  
it, though I don't know if it would be possible to introduce something  
like this. And as it is not backward compatible, it will be of limited use  
in the near future.
