At the moment, the only part of CSS2 which will be obsoleted in CSS3 is
the 'marker' value of the 'display' property. I believe we haven't removed
anything else. That's no guarentee that we won't in future, but if you
depend on a CSS2 feature tell us now and we will bear that in mind.

CSS2 stylesheets will always be valid CSS2 stylesheets, of course.
