If I'm understanding what you wrote correctly, that just seems to be offloading the issue elsewhere, and is already accomplishable by using existing CSS variables:

```
--my-shade: inset 1px 1px 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);

.element
{
    box-shadow: var(--my-shade);
}
```

That's not what I'm after though... I'm proposing a way to (optionally!) disambiguate those `inset 1px 1px 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.2)` strings altogether.
