As Ian pointed out, this is part of the CSS 2.1 CR, but note that use of
extensions as defined in CSS 2.1 would still render style sheets invalid
and a CSS Validator would consequently report errors if such extensions
are used. If you think there should be a notion of conformance where the
use of such extensions does not render a style sheet non-conforming I
would suggest to raise this as issue against the CSS 2.1 CR.
