Then you discover that making a media query out of -webkit-transform-3d 
is not a good way to make it detectable?  ;)

To be able to handle these kinds of statements you need to define a 
syntax that:

1)  Can be parsed without knowing anything about this thing you don't 
support.

2)  Is guaranteed to be a boolean support check.

Again, it's not clear to me that trying to shoehorn support checks into 
media queries is the right thing.
