The value type of 'column-rule-color' is <color>, whereas the  
'column-rule' shorthand also accepts the 'transparent' keyword. Presumably  
the keyword should be allowed in both cases? If so, the  
'column-rule-color' entry could say "<color> | transparent" and  
'column-rule' could say "<'column-rule-width'> || <'column-rule-style'> ||  

Initial value is given as "same as for ‘color’ property [CSS21]". This  
means it would most likely be black ("depends on user agent"). Isn't this  
supposed to be "the value of the 'color' property", as for e.g.  

Actually, the "Computed value" entry seems wrong too. Probably the wording  
for both of these could just be brought in line with border-*-color from
