I stick with what I said originally in this thread.  The CSS Variables
spec isn't intended to address this type of use.  I'd like to address
the use-case (reusing blocks of code in multiple places), but it might
not be through this precise mechanism - SASS's @extend offers very
similar functionality, and its Mixins essentially provide an inverted
form of this functionality.

I still haven't picked up enough bandwidth to deal with this right now, though.
