It is a bit borderline, since it isn’t a module which ever reached REC, but given than the present document is meant to replace that other one, it doesn’t seem completely out of place either.

Yes, that’s sort of what happened as far as I can tell, but it wasn’t captured as such. I’d rather have "CSS3-UI replaces CSSUI” in the module interactions than lose it form the spec. It could be in the intro as well, but module interaction feels more appropriate to me, as that’s the section telling you how this spec relates to other spec that it does not depend on.
