I see what you mean. When I read the transcript of the WG 
meeting my first thought was that this was how CSS vars died.
It is also sad that some members of the wg would actually like
to see it fail.
I hope this gets sorted out for the best eventually, but I guess 
it will take quite a bit longer as it stands now.

Thanks for the work you put into this!
Mike
