RE: [Css Variables] Variable Declaration Blocks


I hope you are right, and yes I read the transcript from when it was
decided that css vars should be given a decent priority. But that 
was when (in my interpretation) everybody was still in the same boat.

We can now see how the WG is going to make a (or is it two?) 
counter-proposal to the one you and Dave made. With Dave's help 
there was an active community interaction about different aspects of 
the feature. During the month that has passed since the WG decision 
there haven't been a SINGLE followup on the public list thread from 
the two counter-proposal authors. Being an actively discussed subject 
earlier, I would expect the authors to join and continue the 
In my book this looks like everybody wants to cook up their own 
version and then keep arguing about it forever.
But I hope I will be proven wrong.
