There are in my opinion three flaws with the 'content' property
as currently defined. [1]

1) What happened to <attr> values?
    CSS 2.1 allows them and the WD doesn't.
2) It would make sense for <attr> to used like <uri>
    if comma separated lists are added.
3) The fallback value when <uri> fails should be "normal" not "none".
   After all, If one  can't render the contents of the <uri>, one
   would presumably want the usual content to occur which
   would be the result of using "normal"
