Sounds good.

Previously discussed in
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011Jun/0329.html
and deferred to level 4 in:
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012Oct/0275.html

Presumably we'd want to have a requirement that UAs actually *not*
load the sheets through such a supports-query when it fails to
match?  (Also, CSSImportRule.styleSheet MUST be null, even if the
sheet is loaded through some other link.)
