Hi Daniel,

I wrote that because that's the notation used by
(min-|max-)(device-)aspect-ratio in
http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-mediaqueries/ and because I think it's a bad
idea to specify different notations for aspect-ratios. Elements'
aspect-ratio and media queries' aspect-ratio should have a consistent
syntax as their refer to the same concept...

Cheers,
Julien.
