I don’t, but I agree with both of you. 

It *could* pose problems in Java-/Ecma-Script and DOM for lazy or stupid authors, but that’s not good enough a reason to change CSS in a way that violates Unicode principles. Also, the number of people relying on a certain behavior for surrogate pairs, i.e. non-BMP characters, on the Web is probably still very low.
