Tab, I addressed this issue a °ton° of times already... The specified value 
of a property don't depend on any other property value than the one 
specified in the CSS file. There's no hidden inderdepency there, and it 
covers all use cases we need.

Objectively, there's nothing preventing from using the specified value of 
any property as a token source for any other property, just as you do with 
custom properties.
