No, I speak entirely for myself unless I make it clear that I speak
for the team.

What ends up happening is that, at some point, the editor of a
relevant draft chooses to put it in, possibly first running it past
the rest of the group either on the list or in a telcon.

Whether it goes in one of the modules identified as "level 3" isn't
really important; there is no single "CSS3" for it to be a part of.
It would just be a part of some module, whether at level 3 or 4.
