Variables are easiest way to give us top level rules. They will solve 
the problems, especially if they incorporate some kind of calculations.

     @variable a 12px
     @variable b = a + 5%

Actually, inheritance, about which I'm talking, is converting properties 
to variables, with standardized names. Maybe they shouldn't be 
standardized at all:

     .s1 { main-color: green; color: main-color; }
     .s2 { border-color: s1.main-color; }

Or just use already suggested @variable.

But I think @variable must exist too. Also I can suggest that right word 
must be @constant, because if we have calculations in CSS, it will 
become some kind of scripting language.
