Well, it means that either you will end up with duplication of definitions 
between mediaqueries and css3-values, or css3-values will be incomplete.

As the definition of ratio and resolution is already in CR stage, it 
shouldn't be an issue to pub them in css3-values, and even adds an edcopy 
that it won't change anymore if mediaqueries reaches rec before values is 
anywhere near stable, so I just find the current situation suboptimal.
