So I'm really hesitant to make this change only for @supports, and
not for any of the other places that might have the same issue (such
as media queries).

I think if we want to solve this issue because it's a usability
issue, we should solve it in a general way that applies to all of
CSS.  That said, I don't see an easy way to do that.
