Sorry but I disagree here, these value definitions take the form of
@-rules but they are not @-rules.  Other @-rules have a defined set of
descriptors, these do not, I want to be careful to distinguish the
two.  It's a simple use of terminology I think that helps prevent
confusion with other "real" @-rules.  At a syntax level, they are 
roughly equivalent but not entirely so (e.g. user-defined "descriptors" that
are case sensitive).

Cheers,
