We received another request for prefers-* Media Features today; engineers from one of our major web sites have expressed an interest in being able to use these soon.

It should be against MQ4; L3 is REC and thus frozen.

We generally want to make sure things get discussed on the list first,
rather than in pull requests, but since this has, that's not a problem.

We should probably get a more solid proposal for the WG to discuss in
any case; that could be edits to the spec, a separate file somewhere,
or--more simply--just more detail in the email: that is, the definite
list of queries, grammars, and their meaning. The initial post was
just "some examples".
