The problem:

-Most CSS style sheets on the web will not validate often they can not be 
parsed unambiguously
-Many CSS style sheet - including valid ones - give a bit of a different 
affect on different browsers
-CSS is visual formatting information, So from an accessibility standpoint a 
valid file that can be parsed unambiguously is not a priority one type thing
-Changing and fiddling with the CSS file is a big job for the author. When 
you change on thing, you need to retest in all the different environments 
and stage things can happen....

Yet this seems to be level 1

All the best
