And we did not release a spec about Variables but a spec about Custom
User-Defined Properties, something waaaaay better integrated to the
CSS model :-)

Let me clarify my "wish":

1. some very important parts of the embedded software industry
    badly need the feature
2. they need it because otherwise users won't consider their apps
    as modern, so we can say this is based on users' request and
    feedback
3. I have the feeling this is stylistic and that CSS already has
    a lot of live proposals we can reuse for that
4. so I think it fits best in CSS because after all, that's about
    transitions between a page containing a link and the target of
    a link; if it's not in CSS, it's going to drastically complexify
    the solution, IMHO. My opinion only, but still.
