I don't understand the relevance of these tests to what Shane said.
Shane tested the use of @-rules inside of declaration blocks.  You're
testing nested curly braces, which is something completely different,
and which we shouldn't expect to act the same.  (In particular, the
behavior of @-rules inside of declaration blocks is dependent on there
being a semicolon at the end, which the error-recovery behavior uses
to resume parsing as normal.)

I don't understand.  SASS is a server-side technology.  What relevance
does SASS have here?
