It's listed on http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/CSS2.1/current/ in
the second list.

I would like us to avoid making tests that rely on this assumption,
especially as higher-res devices are becoming more common. CSS has
very particular rules for handling different screen resolutions,
and making this assumption reduces the test suite's ability to
evaluate UA support for handling such devices according to the spec.
