I was having the exact same comment here while doing last call review of
the 'icon' property. I hope this comment can be addressed. Also,

  # Media:	all

If I am not missing something, this should be "Media: visual" instead.

(By the way, the section number changed from 6.2 to 5.2)

I tend to agree. But dropping this is breaking CSS2.1 compatibility[1]
and I don't have data to know if we are able to do so.
