Not really. The CSS WG is asserting in the documents that things have  
not been implemented and things have been implemented
     AND
that it will be one of the reasons to remove some features. Without  
giving the picture of the landscape by the mean of a CSS  
implementation charts, it's difficult to evaluate.

The Appendix C gives the changes between two versions of the CSS  
technology:
     CSS 2 and CSS 2.1
not the implementations.

I guess with the CSS Test Suite plus things like
     http://www.macedition.com/cb/resources/abridgedcsssupport.html

You would be able to assert for each properties what has been  
implemented and not implemented and where. That would be beneficial  
for the Web community.
