Ah, thanks, this looks exactly like what I was looking for. I must
have been using the wrong keywords

The @supports rule looks pretty much like the third syntax I was
thinking about, although I can't say that this text:

> The ‘@supports’ rule is at risk; if interoperable implementations are not found, it may be removed to advance the other features in this specification to Proposed Recommendation.

is particularly encouraging ;-)

On the other hand, now that I know what to look for, it seems that
webkit, mozilla _and_ opera are working on it, so I guess I _can_ keep
my hopes up.

Thanks a lot again,
