Agreed. We should just make sure we look at it before we get close to a release. The principles of the design shouldn't be substantially different. Starting with LESS to get the ball rolling makes sense.
Also, I am trying to use very simple aspects of less that would be supported by basically any less preprocessor. The "API" aspects of our CSS are 1) class names (which won't change) and 2) the variable declarations (which will be a few dozen lines). But those things should be stable through major versions of JupyterLab
