There is a proposal for custom Media Queries (similar to custom 
properties but in a different namespace)

http://dev.w3.org/csswg/mediaqueries4/#custom-mq

But Boris’s point still stands. Can custom MQs be declared inside 
conditional rules? In stylesheets that are imported or linked 
conditionally with a MQ? What is their scope? Do they apply to @media 
rules in other stylesheets? To non-CSS MQs in the document? How are any 
circular definition resolved?
