It needs CSS Values and Units for the calc() function.  CSS Math is
unrelated to calculation; it's just designed to help *style* math on
the web, such as to meet the needs of MathML.

The only two things used in there that aren't widely supported are
calc() (that's in most browsers, or will be soon, though), and
Generated Content support for ::outside (nobody does this yet).
