== [css-cascade-5] Layers terminology bikeshed ==
Cascade 5 introduces a concept which it currently "cascade layers", in communications this frequently becomes just "layers".  Myself (and I think a few others) suggested at one point that it would be ideal if it could not be "layer" which seems overloaded with stacking context layers and even concepts like "top layer".  I'm not of the opinion that this would be _disasterous_, just that it is more ideal if we can avoid it by just using another term.

Other quick, not well thought out alternatives off the top of my head, "cascade priorities" or "cascade levels" or "cascade zones" ?
