Regarding http://dev.moonhenge.net/css21/spec/z-index/ (issue 60 for 
CSS2.1), the working group has discussed the request and concluded that 
only the "'s" and "non-positioned" changes will be made at this time. 
However, the suggested changes will be kept in mind and may be addressed 
in CSS3.

If there are any issues still present, the working group would like to ask 
for test cases to demonstrate the problems.

Thanks,
