To be more specific about the skepticism: every use-case I've seen 
presented for this has been "writing CSS tutorials" (or equivalent).  
This makes sense, as there's virtually no reason for "5px" or 
"#aabbcc" to show up on a production website.  The only case that's 
*remotely* plausible for production is formatting a chart with a %, 
and displaying that % in text as well.  No other value type has any 
business being printed to the page, really.
