Errata item for CSS2 section 12.2 is redundant

The errata document [1] contains this entry:
   
# 12.2 The 'content' property
# 
#  The 'content' property applies to 'display : marker' elements and both
#  :before and :after pseudo-elements.

However, since no elements can be set to 'display: marker' except
generated content (:before and :after) [2], there is no point in that
change! What was the thinking behind it?

The CSS2 spec currently reads:

# 'content'
# [...]
#     Applies to:    :before and :after pseudo-elements
