Yes: Become a W3C member, become a member of the CSS working group, send a 
proposal to the mailing list asking for it to be added to the next 
meeting's agenda, come to the meeting, defend the idea, write a spec for 
it, send the spec to the mailing list asking for it to be added to the 
next meeting's agenda, come to the meeting, and defend the spec. (If you 
want it to actually get further than a proposal, you'll also need to 
address the issues raised by the other members of the group, get a minuted 
decision to publish, go through the publication process, then repeat the 
last few steps (also addressing public feedback) to get the spec to CR, 
then write a test suite, then get implementation reports created showing 
interoperability, then get the spec to go to PR, and wait for the W3C 
membership to vote on the spec for it to become a REC).

To become a W3C member, the first step of that formal process, see:

That is the informal procedure.
