Any two complete implementations of CSS renderers could be used. They 
could be two complete implementations based on XML, based on HTML, based 
on SGML, based on an unserialised DOM, or anything else.

There just have to be two equivalent implementations.

Note that CSS is not HTML specific. Whlie it has a couple of HTML-specific 
requirements that do not apply to non-HTML UAs, those are very minor and 
would not be a problem in this context.
