I am not asking you to use jQuery.
I am asking: do you need a) to change styling [of group] of elements in 
runtime (from script - runtime variability)?
Or is it about b) redefining some CSS attribute values later in style 
sheet (pure CSS business - load time variability)?

What exactly you need CSS Variables for (a or b)? Could you provide real 
case definition where you will benefit
from them?
