Good catch.  I was going by a passage more familiar to me, although
admittedly non-normative:

    In CSS1, a class name could start with a digit
    (".55ft"), unless it was a dimension (".55in").

That comes from CSS2:D.3, "Comparison of tokenization in CSS2 and CSS1",
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-CSS2-19980512/grammar.html>.

Add an errata for CSS2, I suppose.
