Hi,

We have a proposal for this in CSS Color 4:

http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-color-4/#modifying-colors
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-color-4/#tint-shade-adjusters

The syntax for your examples would be:

   color(#000000 tint(20%))
   color(#ffffff shade(30%))

Feel free to send feedback on this here.
