I don't see how it helps.

In particular, I think it would probably be a good idea if
serialization rules we came up with for variables or @supports were
able to handle some of the contents being selectors rather than
property values -- and to do so correctly without knowing whether
the contents were selectors or property values.

Otherwise I worry we'd have trouble extending these concepts to
cover selectors if we wanted to do so in the future.
