[css-syntax] Multiple !values

At the moment, the draft defines a single boolean flag on declarations 
for !important. Issue 3 suggest generalizing that to arbitrary values.


One possible use case that we discussed is adding type annotations to 
Custom Properties for enabling interpolation:

   var-foo: red !type(color);

However, as we don’t know yet which syntax we want…

   var-foo: red !important !type(color);
   var-foo: red !important type(color);
   var-foo: red !important, type: color;

I suggest closing the issue for now and deferring this to a future level 
of Syntax, when we have a CSS feature that uses this.
