Following previous mail on the topic [1] and subsequent (short) discussions at TPAC, I want to reach final agreement on the interfaces to be obsoleted before moving the actual process of having them referenced as such from DOM L2 Style [2] itself.

There is consensus on obsoleting getPropertyCSSValue(), CSSValue, as well interfaces derived from CSSValue i.e. :


The original WG mail [3] also enumerated:


For CSSUnknownRule, the mail points out that: "unknown rules should be dropped by the parser and thus never reach the DOM". I still think it would be useful for a number of tools (Firebug?) to be able to enumerate rules that were dropped but OK. I'll buy that.

What about RGBColor, Rect and Counter ?
