This issue was originally raised by dbaron [1].

Right now, all the properties in the specification apply to the 'visual' media. That's not right since the visual media group includes print [2].

Except for transition-property [3], css-transitions uses the 'interactive' media. I think this is better than 'visual' though it includes braille, speech or tty.

Though we usually specify a media group in our propdef table, I think this may be a case where we may want to list media types i.e. screen, projection, tv, handheld.

Yes, we could maybe define a new media group but this is a level of bikeshedding I have no wish to inflict on anyone.
