There might be an intermediate possibility. A report which justify/ 
shows what has not been implemented. Each time there was a change  or  
a feature dropped in CSS 2.1 with regards to CSS 2.0.
     A test case could illustrate and reports on buggy  
implementations and then explain why it has been decided to drop it.

And yes definitely, during CR, the CSS 2.1 Test Suite will give the  
opportunity to show that CSS 2.1 implementations exist. My issue  
could for this matter stays open until the end of CR phase and then  
it will not block you to pass the transition from LC to CR.
