== [css-variables-1] CSS Variables should be considered as released. ==
Hey!

CSS variables have been in release recommendation since 2015. While this is a necessary step to let browsers implement the feature properly and keep cohesion, we are way past this point. Even Internet Explorer 8 supports CSS variables.

The problem is that the validator rejects this syntax as it is not officially considered released and this create customer relations issues in modern projects.

It is way overdue to consider CSS variables as fully released and to update the validator as such so we can safely use them without the fear of false positive error reports.
