Well then, I have to admit I like it very much!
The concept of having initial values to resolve media queries to avoid
circular dependency is not new (see CSS Device Adaptation et al.), but
I find it disturbing the value used to resolve MQs in that case is
different depending on whether the content of MQ affects viewport, or
style application.

What if @initial could also contain @viewport?
Or, in general, it could contain whatever can affect media queries, so
that properties specified in it are the only values which can affect
It would be the opposite of the concept of "scope" I proposed some
days ago and which is not logically applicable to CSS.
