'var()' function is limited for custom property only.
But custom and normal property should be treated equally.
Custom properties are not spacial, except:
1. They do not display.
2. They are inherited always.

So I want to do like this:
..foo {
    color: red;
}
..foo .bar {
    border: 1px solid var(color);
}

And then we will change 'var()' function name to 'value()'.
'currentcolor' keyword in [CSS3COLOR] may be deleted.
