have a VR media type. VR has a number of unique characteristics that a
website might need to adapt to, such as dramatically increased field of
view. This means content or interface elements may need to be brought in
from the edges of the screen, FOV adjustments, depth adjustment of 3d
objects, and possibly input changes will need to be made based on the VR
media type.

Well, we don't do media types any more (check out the spec for the
deprecation reasoning), but I'd support a new media feature for detecting
this stuff.

What are the independent features of a VR display that would cause you to
alter the styles of your page?
