Hi,

The CSS working group discussed these issues.

The statements you cite only apply to text/css resources, which are the 
responsibility of the CSS working group. They are not statements regarding 
the general W3C property namespace, which naturally is shared by all W3C 
working groups.

We therefore reject your request that these statements be changed.

Cheers,
