I'm not in a position to judge whether the problem with chained rules
that you have raised is serious enough to preclude their use. The
example just illustrates that that wouldn't prevent some other form of
multi-way branch being added.

Hopefully your objection isn't just to the choice of names. It could
just as easily be:

  @first-of {   /* use the first non-discarded rule */
      @when C1 { ... }
      @when C2 { ... }
      ...
      @otherwise { ... }    /* optional */
  }
