The syntax would probably be @import, but this is something we'd have to 
have a discussion about on the dev list. This might be something we 
don't need to port over right away if we combine our .xss files 
correctly. I'm not sure without looking into it in detail.

No, we do not have this feature yet in CSS. This should be supported as 
well, I think, to be able to port the XSS files over to CSS. I think 
this is more useful that @import.
Here's an example of its usage from base-desktop.xss

  <!-- AFVeryDarkForeground is the darkest foreground color in the core 
       color ramp -->
  <style name="AFVeryDarkForeground">
    <includeProperty name="AFVeryDarkBackground"
