If @media is used, then extra syntax is needed to disambiguate the new 
thing from media queries.  You end up with an extra level of parenthesis 
nesting, etc.

Maybe, if no one will in fact send 100K of 3d transforms with a 1K 
document.  I understand what the use cases are for conditioning @import
