If we were, today, trying to invent supports queries, and someone 
suggested just putting them into our sole existing conditional rule 
(`@media`), I'd be receptive. But we aren't - we already have two 
specialized conditional rules that handle different kinds of things 
(and a third that was proposed and exists in Firefox user-level 
stylesheets), so it's weird to privilege one of them.

Also, media queries have a weird legacy syntax with their media types 
that makes this a little stranger.  Overall not that great.  Starting 
fresh and putting all the types of queries on an equal footing is 
simple and easy.
