In these cases, it is usual that the feature is clearly not
supported at all.

CSS is different.  Features are often partially or incorrectly implemented,
and partial implementation is actually encouraged when full implementation
is impracticable.  Generally, people wanting conditional content, do not
want to even supply the property to any browser that doesn't fully and
correctly implement the feature.
