I understand that.  You understand that.  I would venture that most 
people on this list understand that.  Most people who complain about the 
way UAs handle CSS clearly do NOT understand that.  See the comments 
made about selector support, for example.  People seem to feel that not 
supporting CSS2 selectors is a bug.

That's not the way it's viewed by most CSS authors, unfortunately....
