ok, I have clearly asked the wrong question  :)

My use-case allows non-css people to set (for example) background colors in 
a (traditionally) layered fashion (i.e.: the columns inherit/acquire from 
portal, portal from the 'canvas' etc..)

CSS does this well, but I need to implement something of a more intuitive 
interface (i.e.: nested), so I am looking for an elegant UI for (some of) 
the vars (on very specific elements) and I thought this might already be 
part of someone's cunningly conceived future plans.

I am really asking to be pointed towards anything that might already exist, 
perhaps as a hint of what direction to take. (i.e.: should I implement a 
folderish tree to model the 'layers' and vars, to make use of acquisition?)
