Would something like the following work in either of those cases? I 
think it definately should.

:root {
	data-border-type: solid 1px;
	data-border-color: #f00;
}
div {
	border: data(border-type) data(border-color);
}

In other words: you shouldn't only be able to replace one of the values 
*or* a series of values but mix and match also. I hope I'm being clear.
