I didn't invent [CSS variables](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-variables/), I wrote a demo based on what you described that leveraged the built-in features of CSS. Everything I have done is something that can be done with CSS as it currently is specced and supported in browsers. I'm pitching using CSS.

Isn't this why CSS variables exist? If this gets close to what you're hoping to have someday in CSS, I wonder to what extent you can make use of CSS variables to simulate this sort of functionality in the meantime.
