Hi,

I agree with Tab here: http://www.xanthir.com/b4Ko0 , and I believe a 
large part of the group does too.

Last week we discussed moving some Selectors level 4 features to level 
5, in order to stabilize and publish the former. At the same time, we 
have new features in level 1 that are part of what people tend to call 
"CSS3".

I haven’t heard of making individual CSS WG documents living standards, 
but CSS as a whole is effectively one, with modules that progress each 
at a different pace.

Version or level number for CSS as a whole do not make sense anymore 
(and haven’t since after level 2) in my opinion.

Do you think it useful if the group (as opposed to individual members) 
takes a position on this and writes it down somewhere?

Cheers,
