In both cases, the rules are about ensuring extensibility; they err towards
faulting or ignoring, rather than the more commercially acceptable best guess.
The XML well formedness rules are to allow the addition of elements unknown
to the user agent in a way that allows the user agent still to process the
elements it understands.  The CSS rules are about ignoring *valid* but not yet
defined constructs.
