@fantasai , I see your point.
 
Reviewing @faceless2 comment and reviewing issues #[3746](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/3746) and #[5389](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/5389), I see I misunderstood the problem. Count depth needs a arbitrary start point in the structure, values would be absolute and would not help calculation of properties relative to the parent's properties. And also would inform which kind of elements were between the start of counting and the point being evaluated. So would be a problem to arbitrary choose which element to start counting.

The core of of the problem of both issues just needs knows de upper element's properties, and calculate its own properties from it. So, counting depth is useless.

I conclude the entire concept of counting depth is useless. I apologize.
