There's technically no such thing as valid CSS2.1, becuase it's not a 
published recommendation yet.  It could (and does) change quite a lot 
before a final publication.  Hence, to update the validator when it could 
be wrong next week would be a waste of energy.

By now the specification has stabilised, but it's still best to wait.
