One thing I would really like to see is a kind-of WebAssembly for CSS.

Some sort of intermediate representation (IR) that lets us tell the browser more specifically what to render would be really cool. It would also (I think?) make rendering simpler for browsers as much of the complexity would be moved to the compiler that compiles the high-level CSS-like language to the lower-level IR.
