As previously discussed with a few of you at face to face
meetings, I've started a new draft to specify a few units
and values that were missing from css, and whose addition
make the language nicer to use, read, and maintain.

I think this should all be fairly easy to implement, and
in fact Opera had already implemented some of this in
Presto a few years back[1]. Arguably, this could push
some pressure on browsers that use very few bits to store
number types, but this is not really worse than what you
can do using scientific notation (or mashing the keyboard
for too long), so I don't think this is critical.

Together with recent additions in the Fetch specification[2],
this extends the expressivity of the web platforms in ways
which I believe native app platforms are unlikely match.

If the group agrees, I'd like to publish as FPWD.
