(chair hat off)

Before our call later today, I would like to forward here verbatim
comments from css authors I recently met and had a long chat with:

1. the whitespace and sign constraints inside both calc() and
   :nth-*() pseudos are painful to remember and prone to
   errors; they also impact readability and maintainability.
   CSS authors don't want to know about constraints imposed by the
   CSS tokenization, it should just work intuitively.

2. (unrelated to the agenda item above) the -- prefix for Custom
   Properties is ugly and unreadable, also prone to errors. (and
   I will not tell you their precise words here, ahem...)

I tend to agree with both opinions.
