I haven't followed this thread carefully, but I thought everybody 
understood that constants are impossible in the cascade model of CSS. 
Author-set constants that is, because we do have constants already, they 
are called keywords. We could make keywords variable, but that's it (and 
somehow nobody seems interested to pursuit that idea).

Programming is *very* different from CSS (despite all those curly brackets).
