Indeed, I would like this thread to be closed given that an agreement has 
been reached on his initial subject (the philosophy behind the 
[css-variables] proposal), and that the ongoing discussion seems to have 
shifted again to the variable syntax. The final syntax will be subject to 
vote in a future CSS WG telcon and Tab already collected enough feedback and 
proposals to craft a good optionset to present to the WG members (no-op, 
$foo, x-foo, ...) with pros and cons. As multiple WG members followed the 
CSS variable threads, I don't think we have to worry about repeating our 
arguments anymore.

That being said, if there are still people having remarks about the syntax 
(nothing wrong with it), I would like to ask them to do so in another, more 
appropriate thread.

Thanks a lot,
François
