I'm not sure where this belief that src-N doesn't support arbitrary
MQs comes from. The syntax doesn't support media *types* (screen,
print, etc), but media types are being deprecated *anyway*, and we're
designing new media features that replace them.
(Sorry to single you out - Adam Barth was under this impression as
well. The spec just has this quite explicitly featured, so I'm
confused about it.)
