I hate to throw another one into the mix or anything, but, is
something like this a non-starter at this point:
   - $ is a shortcut/convenience for simple var()
   - left and right compliment, rather than match?
   - a short prefix other than $ or var which both appear to be loaded
with perception problems..

Something like -

:root{ def-primarycolor: blue; }
.x{ background-color: $primarycolor; }

Where def-* is a place for author defined properties to be hung?

((bracing for the beatdown...))
