Allow the use of keywords in custom property fallback.

One useful use case is to allow the use of "revert" to use user-agent stylesheet value as fallback.

Ex: * {display:var(--display,revert); --display:initial}

The example may seem redundant, but becomes useful with more complex logic such as responsive variants, modular scale for font sizes etc.

Firefox already supports this, Chrome is in the process of fixing it in https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1105782
