I agree. I would also like to see the CSS site "eat their own dog  
food" and attempt some more sophisticated styling to achieve effects  
that push the envelope more, and make them look consistent across  
bowsers and platforms, while also validating. Maybe even a CSS Zen  
Garden sort of thing that lets people try out various style sheets  
for the site that demonstrate modern CSS (including CSS3, where  
available in many browsers) and that demonstrate some of the  
challenges modern designers face.
