> There's no need for any of those slashes; they serve no purpose for 
disambiguation. And there's no need for a comma separating the 
fallback from the rest, for the same reason. color() is also allowed 
in fallback, intentionally - you can fallback to a different 
colorspace.

Having multiple nestlings of color() in order to get multiple 
fallbacks is exactly what I don't like about that. It's ugly and 
unreadable. It would be better, and more consistent with other CSS, if
 commas were used for separating the multiple fallbacks WITHOUT having
 to repeat the `color(` on one side and `)` on the other. And once you
 do that, then comma is no longer available as a visual separator of 
the subgoubings. Thus, a slash instead.
