@keyframes also supports a wide list of properties. It's however yet to be 
determinted if variables should be relative to :root or the object to which 
the animation is applied.

We're talking about things *other* than @page and @*-margin.  I
already mentioned that those are basically just selectors, but have to
be wedged into the at-rule syntax.  They inherit from the root
already, so they should "automatically" get variables as well.

Among all the other existing at-rules, are there any where there's a
good reason to want a variable?
