I don't understand the relevance.  CSS should support HTML5 as well as
HTML4 and XML.  Clearly #123456 wouldn't match anything in a
conformant HTML4 or XML document, but it might match something in a
conformant HTML5 document, so why require the extra trouble of
escaping the first character for HTML5 authors?
