Yes i obviously missread the rec (CSS 2.1 even introduced changes to 
clarify this) and i worded the above poorly.

However, i still think that what Mozilla and IE does currently makes
more technical sense (for both authors and UAs) than what the rec states 
you should do.

It would IMHO be a good idea for the WG to consider changing this in CSS 
2.1, or perhaps in a future errata to CSS 2.1 if that works better 
process-wise, even if it is a very minor issue.
