'repeat(...)' will follow the same syntax as other
functional notation in CSS. Note that if not for the
opening parentheses the first part would be tokenized
as a keyword.

I wouldn't consider it "natural" to insert whitespace
between a function and its opening parentheses. Most
coding styles I've seen don't do that.
