Nice!

I especially like it that you did the effort to support the draft's 
syntax. It looks like your method is a bit fragile (extra GET, 
regexp-based parsing), but it allows people to see exactly what the 
draft means.

I thought your software was worth a news item on W3C's CSS pages[1].

(I also added CÚsar Acebal's and Andrew Fedoniouk's prototypes. CÚsar's 
is of course a bit old by now, but Andrew's may be interesting because 
it uses a slightly different syntax which may or may not allow 
different layouts.)
