The use case was being able to write angles in CSS almost verbatim like everyone does in mathematics. The WG’s resolution is to make authors accept an unfamiliar factor of 2 every time, because that saves each implementor one man-hour or so once.

I just wish the CSS WG would adopt HTML’s [Priority of Constituencies](https://www.w3.org/TR/html-design-principles/#priority-of-constituencies), because with proposals like this I want the language to become more author-friendly. All I’m ever getting as an answer is a polite variant of “fuck you”.
