Is it an error for the var property (the data-foo declaration is 
ignored) or where it is expanded? (var() resolves to an invalid variable)

To be clear, !important is, after removing comment tokens, any sequence 
of DELIM S* IDENT tokens where the first token is '!' and the last, 
after being unescaped and lower-cased, is 'important'. Is this correct?
