Indeed, that is my point, Working Groups should care about conformant 
content, and how to process it, if they want the above to be consistently 
implemented by user agents, then all they have to do is make it conformant 
and specify the algorithm for determining the colour.

The options for the working group are Must ignore, which means specify 
everything they want to be implemented identically as valid, and everything 
else be ignored, or undefined it's up to the implementation what they do - 
that is far my preferred option, must ignore is not useful to users.
