That's what del and ins are for.

CSS 2.1 goes further than just implementing the errata into CSS 2.0.
I agree that it would help to have the errata included directly into the
spec, or at least links to it. I understand nevertheless, that it's W3C's
policy to not alter specs after release, only supersede them. Anyhow, a CSS
2.0 Second Edition (like XHTML 1.0) with just the errata worked in or a
constantly updated version would have been better, IMHO, [than|before] doing
a "current browser habit documentation version".
