So this would imply the edits below.  I think these titles are somewhat confusing, "fonts module level 3" does not exactly come to mind when I think about CSS3 Fonts.  But if this is the will of the WG, so be it.  I think the current work page does need to be updated, the priorities listed there don't match the charter and some modules don't exist anymore (e.g. Web Fonts) or are not included in the charter. 


Not sure why Selectors and Media Queries lack a CSS prefix, but, whatever...
