Well, in fairness there is: Whenever such a limitation of CSS2.1 is hit, 
errata CSS2.1 as needed and publish the updated version quickly.  As in, 
move it to more of a "living spec" model.  As long as the changes are 
just adding new definition hooks, this should be pretty safe in terms of 
not making existing implementations non-compliant (a common complaint 
about the "living spec" model), have low overhead, and not block other 
specs too much.
