The whole things starts smelling like the worst of hacks in CSS. So an
editor removing one rule (the @media one) will have to carefully look
if there is an @else after it. To do what? Remove it? Explode it?
Keep it standalone (what does it even mean in that case...)?

When was the last time you implemented a Wysiwyg editor dealing with
media queries and why don't you listen? Can you please for once accept
what others are saying when you have no knowledge of that domain?
