Well, actually the last part ("the names of media types are  
normative") is in CSS2.1:7.3 "Recognized media types" [1], but  
otherwise you are correct ! This is a confusion on my part due to  
CSS2.1:7.3.1 "Media groups" [2] being 'shifted' to CSS3-Syntax:10.7  
"Media groups" [3] (a long way down from CSS3-Syntax:7.1.4.  
"Recognized media types" [4]). Anyway, I will just pretend the CSS3- 
Syntax Module doesn't exist from now on. :o)

This resolves my first issue.

My second issue (mutual exclusion versus mixed media speech+visual) is  
resolved by virtue of CSS2.1 "Media Groups".

Case closed.
Thanks !
Daniel
