[webkit-dev] CSSGroupingRule and a bit of refactoring?

We already have internal type corresponding to the new
CSSGroupingRule, StyleRuleBlock. Technically refactoring the CSSOM like
this would be fairly trivial.

It is not clear to me what value this new type adds though. In JS you don't
really care if types have a common base as long as they share similar
looking interface. Are there some concrete use cases?
