In section 4.4 CSS style sheet representation, the specification states:

<blockquote>
This specification does not mandate which character encodings a user agent
must support.
</blockquote>

It seems like there must be some minimal requirement.  For instance, the
ability to specify a charset with "@charset" implies the requirements
elaborated just before section 4.4.1.

It seems support for UTF-8 is a requirement since the UA *must* assume UTF-8
if the charset is not specified.  Shouldn't the referenced passage be
modified to reflect the UTF-8 requirement?
