The current (post CR) editor's draft of Media Queries
   http://www.w3.org/Style/Group/css3-src/css3-mediaqueries/Overview.html
says the following at the end of section 3.


"If one media query in a comma-separated list is ignored, the other media 
queries in the list are also ignored.

=======
Example XV
<link rel="stylesheet" media="screen and (max-weight: 3kg) and (color), 
(color)" href="example.css" />

In this example, the first media query is rejected due to an unknown media 
feature and unknown value, but the second media query is evaluated as if 
the first had not been specified.======="

The first statement, that other queries are ignored, is a direct reversal 
of the previous draft, which says, "If one media query in a comma-separated 
list is rejected, the other media queries in the list are evaluated as if 
the rejected media query had not been there." That first statement is also 
in conflict with the example.

What is correct?
