Hi WebKittens!

I'd like to remove the CSS variable feature from the tree now that Chromium has left, as they were the only ones shipping it AFAIK.
The feature is awkwardly implemented, the syntax has not been well received by web developers,
and in the CSS WG priorities poll[1] last October, there was very little interest in the spec (it ranked 50 out of 58.)

Unless there are any objections, I'll be pursuing the removal here: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=114119
