There are things that are not adequately covered, such as the table model.  
But that's not overlooked on purpose, that's just delayed for CSS3 to  
solve.

Things that the WG does consider solvable for CSS 2.1 are fixed, such as  
the various parsing issues raised on this list. Furthermore, since all  
technical discussion happens in public and we've two implementors who do  
their work in public intentionally hiding "big holes" seems rather tricky.  
Is there a particular reason why you raise this concern?
