You are making a distinction without a difference.  There is no CSS2.1
property for which "url(-my-hack())" is a well-formed value, so the
declaration will be discarded, before and after my proposal.
Anything that triggers ยง4 error recovery is a syntax error, is my way
of thinking about it.

If some subsequent CSS module wishes to add new variations on url(), we
can worry about it then. I earnestly hope this never happens.
