Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-env] Consider value-level parsing like calc() rather than token-level like var() (#3285)

I submit for your consideration a practical case where the current parsing definition of `env()` is hostile to reasonable expectations, from

margin-bottom: 15px;
margin-bottom: env(safe-area-inset-bottom, 15px);
margin-bottom: max(env(safe-area-inset-bottom, 15px), 15px);

First rule, fine. Second rule, fine: discarded if `env()` is not supported, and handled properly with a suitable default if it is. Third rule, the defined behaviour of `env()` means that it’s valid on `env()`-supporting browsers, but treated as `unset` if `max()` isn’t defined, and so it overrides the second rule.

The currently necessary workaround is to shift the third rule into a `@supports (margin-bottom: max(0, 15px))` block, but this is nasty.
