This is likely simply a result of Multicol not explicitly depending on
Colors Level 3, where transparent is a valid value for <color>.

We had a discussion a few months ago about this, which didn't come to
a conclusion that satisfied me, but essentially it was decided to just
leave it with a reference to CSS2.1, but allow implementors to use the
Colors Level 3 if they wished.  When Colors reaches an appropriate
level on the Rec track, Multicol will have its reference updated.
