I wouldn't go there. Javascript has everything that's needed for doing  
conjunctions and disjunctions, so this adds no new capability.

The semantics are not even obvious:

CSSStyleDeclaration.isValid("background: double-rainbow(center);  
background: radial-gradient(circle at center, red, yellow, green, blue,  

Should this return true if there is no parsing error at all, or if it  
results into background being assigned at least one value? The fact that  
the parser can recover from errors complicate things.

All in all, I think we should stick to the simpler version, and leave it  
to javascript to build combined boolean expressions.
