Close no longer, as I ripped out the shorthand syntax parsing parts of that patch pending better, more final syntax here.  Moreover, this strawman requires greater parser lookahead than is otherwise necessary for parsing CSS, which is probably a bigger problem than the ugliness the proposal was intended to address, all things considered.
