This is a QA Review comment for "CSS Module: Namespaces"
2nd WD

About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-css3-namespace-20060828/#intro

	It should be noted that a CSS client that does 
	not support this module will (if it properly 
	conforms to CSS forward compatible parsing rules) 
	ignore all @namespace rules, as well as all style 
	rules that make use of namespace qualified names. 
	The syntax of delimiting namespace prefixes in CSS 
	was deliberately chosen so that these CSS clients 
	would ignore the style rules rather than possibly 
	match them incorrectly.

If this information is important for this module, it doesn't belong to the introduction at all but to the Conformance section.
No link is given to these "CSS forward compatible parsing rules" nor there are explained in the document.
