How about variables that represent long strings of selector text? I  
often have to right some rather complex selectors to make up for  
poorly written HTML, and then repeat large parts of them. Having a  
short variable to replace long selectors would probably be more useful  
to me than any other type of CSS variable. It also makes it handy when  
the HTML gets rewritten and the selectors need to be rewritten to  
match it.
