I actually encountered issues similar to Peter Moulder’s when 
implementing a parser. I just made arbitrary choices that seemed to make 
sense at the time, but I’d like to see these issues resolved more 
explicitly in the spec.

css3-syntax seems like the place to do this. Although I’m not part of 
the WG I would gladly help edit this spec.
