I don't think CSS would ever become a standard if that definition is true,
especially given that CSS only hints presentation.

My understanding is that the requirement is applied feature by feature,
not for the whole language.  The aim is to form a crude test that the
specification in unambiguous, and physically implementable, not to create
a market by forcing there to be at least two complete implementations, or
to give any guarantee of pixel perfect reproducibility across user agents.
