This has been recorded as
http://csswg.inkedblade.net/spec/css3-color#issue-13 .

I think there is value in having a section for each possible type of
value.  It's a common way of organizing references, and it's helpful
to implementors.  Therefore I have not made any change in
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-color/ .

If you are not satisfied with this response, please let us know
within two weeks, if possible.
