Another approach (and this could apply to all techniques documents)
would be as follows:

1. Provide techniques according to specification (i.e., in this case,
   CSS levels 1 and 2).

2. Note known implementation issues as part of the techniques, and
   provide suggested work-arounds, with examples as needed.

3. In the XML source of the techniques document, ensure that the
   implementation issues are properly marked up so they will be
   presented consistently, can be located easily, and can be filtered
   if the reader desires.

The main point would be to distinguish carefully between what the
specification requires, and what changes/work-arounds are demanded by
non-conforming implementations. The former would not need to change
often, whereas the latter would have to be updated more frequently.
