There is, for properties.  It's quoted by Emil in the first comment on
that bug. <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=102735#c0>

We don't have a generic design principle for this, but I'd be fine
with adding this.  I don't think something that can really go in the
language itself - it's a guide to designing specs. I've put together a
first draft on the wiki at http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/limited-ranges .
 (We have several articles about spec design there, under the Specs
category.)
