In that case I doubt we'll be able to satisfy your comment. Creating the 
kind of report you are asking for would take months if not years, and the 
CSS working group doesn't have the bandwidth to do this. Eventually, with 
the creation of the CSS 2.1 test suite (a long-term project) we will be 
able to report on the status of CSS 2.1 implementations; however, the 
differences between CSS 2.1 and CSS 2 are numerous and I don't think a 
report of the status of CSS 2 implementations, which would take just as 
long to create and would require a separate test suite of its own, would 
be useful as anything more than a curiosity.
