[DevTools Feature Request] Highlight CSS Grid's named-lines and named-areas when hover above CSS value

Reported by, Jan 14 2018

Issue description

UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_11_6) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/63.0.3239.132 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce the problem:
GSS Grid allows for "named areas" using the grid-template-area property. See .

What is the expected behavior?

What went wrong?
It would be extremely valuable if when hovering your mouse over an an area's name, the corresponding area would highlight within the webpage.

Similarly for CSS Grid also allows for "named lines" using the grid-template-columns and grid-template-rows properties. See .

It would also be extremely awesomely, super-duper helpful if the corresponding line would highlight when the text for the named line is hovered over in the CSS property. 

Did this work before? N/A
