I've removed the CSSVariablesMap.  As you point out, it doesn't
actually do much useful.  I expect to replace it in the future with
something more tailored for JS handling of custom properties.  For
now, the existing CSSOM methods for getting/setting properties can be
used on custom properties as usual.
