In that case, yes, the XHTML2 WG would like to record a formal objection.

This is a change in the philosophical underpinnings of CSS, and how upward  
and downward compatibility is intended to be maintained in CSS, and while  
we are willing to accept that you do not wish to remove or deprecate this  
change, we think the least you can do is point it out in the spec, and  
explain how to deal with it.

Best wishes,

For the XHTML2 WG,
Steven Pemberton
