What I need specifically, and what I think may become popular once I publish this technique, is the ability to map all of the sizing CSS units in existing HTML/CSS/Javascript code, libraries basically, without modifying them.  I already have techniques for applications to use, and I already have to modify each library for use within this scheme.  What I need is a way to do the same thing without actually modifying as much code, or any code.

In other words, I have a valuable technique for web app development that requires that all CSS sizing functions be mapped as above, but doesn't require any other accommodation.  The resulting transformation is essentially a no-op until the system needs to activate scaling.  The CSS is intended to result in the same or roughly the same layout, but be able to scale according to certain rules based on a parent.  This is a bit like the em nested sizing rules, although much more useful.
