So unless I'm misunderstanding something, you are pretty much just 
saying, "Please close your tags, and use lower case more," is that 
about it?  Doing that would seem to cover points 1 & 4 in your 
original post, would it not?  I realize that I am presenting this in 
a very informal and non-technical way, and I certainly don't want to 
speak for Chris and the CDF WG, but doesn't that just about sum it 
up?  Nobody expects a doctype for a bunch of three-line examples, 
right?  So assuming that is a correct summary, is there some reason 
the CSS WG would be unwilling to make those relatively minor changes 
in the name of promoting careful authorship?  (I take it for granted 
that most of the people reading this list would not leave an unclosed 
paragraph in their own code.)

Ian has already responded that the CSS WG is unwilling to rework the 
examples to use other markup languages for fear of introducing 
unintended errors, so the only remaining issue would be placing the 
examples in a separate file.

Just trying to distill things a little.
