I agree that's the right path forward for level 3.

In level 4 of media queries, I think we should deprecate the concept
of mutually exclusive media types, but go through the types and make
sure that we have media queries for the distinctions between them
that we care about (e.g., queries about types of inputs present like
keyboard, pointing device, or touch).
