In 4.2, there is an example that reads "CSS3 module: Syntax
[CSS3-SYNTAX] defines an extension mechanism which uses a not valid
start character for identifiers in CSS, so it is guaranteed never to
be used by any current or future level of CSS. CSS-conforming parsers
will skip rules that contain identifiers with such a character.
Therefore it is not authorized to redefine the properties defined in
the specification." -- this has been changed in CSS2.1. The properties
are not valid, but the working group guarentees to never start a
standard identifier with a hyphen, which has the same result.
