New description:

 I am trying to use global variables for the html tag but they are declared
 for the body tag and there are CSS cascading issues. Is there any filter
 to change the body tag to :root or html?

 Instead of this:

 <style id='global-styles-inline-css'>
 body {--wp--preset--color--background: #f8f5f2; [...] </style>

 I'd like it

 <style id='global-styles-inline-css'>
 :root {--wp--preset--color--background: #f8f5f2; [...] </style>

 Is it possible? I have hot no idea how to fix it.
