Perhaps it's too late, but I had a thought regarding the name choice. What about `val()`? It's close enough to `var()` that it's familiar, and has the impression that it's unsettable, and would therefore be set by some other process (the browser or what have you). It's also short.

My only issue with it would be that it is almost _too_ similar to `var()`, and might be mistakenly interchanged, though I am not convinced that this would be a major problem.
