Some of these have been mentioned on IRC already, but it wasn't clear to  
me whether they were in line for being addressed in the specification.

Only Firefox (maybe WebKit?) seems to have display:block for multicol. I  
could not find a browser that has it for spacer. So these two elements  
should be removed from that list I think. (Thanks to Simon.)

Since CSS does define the user agent style sheet concept and this section  
effectively defines one for HTML. Can we not do away with presentational  
hints therefore?

It should be noted explicitly that the general rule for flipping margins  
does not apply to the img[align=...] case.

The rules in the form of "table[...] > tr > td" should be removed as  
legacy content does not depend on that.

x h1 { font-size: 1.05em; } should be x h1 { font-size: 1.50em; }.

Only Opera and Internet Explorer support <basefont> but Opera and HTML5  
support it differently (and incomplete) from Internet Explorer. We're  
planning on removing our remaining support and I think it would make sense  
if HTML5 did too (apart from parser support that is).
