Nice! However, I still have one use case in mind the new syntax doesn't solve (in an elegant way): the operator symbols.

    selector {
       a: if(get(b)==none && get(c)<=2) { 0% } else { 100% };
       b: some;
       c: 3;

    sub-selector {
       b: none;
       c: 1;

I would prefer the grammar of a property value to accept any token inside a block except block terminators <},],)> and not just a limited subset of tokens. But if there's a good reason to limit the subset, that's fine.
