I'll be completely honest here—I don't fully understand everything going on here. ¯\\\_(ツ)_/¯ I build _with_ CSS; I don't build CSS. ;)

So all I can say is that I have a strong gut feeling that implementing native CSS nesting in a way that breaks the compatibility that SCSS currently has with pure CSS is a bad move. Yes, I know the onus is not on CSS to retain that compatibility. Regardless, I feel like intentionally breaking it (or allowing it to break) when there are other ways to implement things will actively disrupt a large portion of the web.

I presume that for whatever reason, implementing native CSS nesting in the exact same way that SCSS already does it has been ruled out?
