Given that the CSS working group has spent most of the last three years 
fixing the problems that arose from CSS2, and was actively maintaining the 
errata for some 3 years before that, that's a rather inflammatory 
suggestion. You will find the CSS2 errata here:

   http://www.w3.org/Style/css2-updates/REC-CSS2-19980512-errata.html

This was maintained until CSS2.1 WD was released, at which point CSS2.1 
WDs became the proposed errata for CSS2; now that CSS2.1 has reached CR, 
the CSS2 errata refers to CSS2.1 as being the actual errata for CSS2.
