Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-values] calc()'s divisions should support more things

The OP's bug is invalid; the grammar in <https://drafts.csswg.org/css-values/#calc-syntax> definitely allows numeric expressions in the denominator, and the type-checking in <https://drafts.csswg.org/css-values/#calc-type-checking> is referring to "resolved types". Expressions like `(1 + 1)` have a "resolved type" of `<number>`.

Fran├žois's issue is also invalid - a `calc()` will always resolve to either a `<number>`, `<percentage>`, or `<dimension>`, so nested calc()s are definitely allowed per the grammar.
