Style redefinition warning across different media types

Dear Sir or Madam:

Your validator gives a warning when a style is redefined across two
media types. That is, if I specify a style in a linked "screen" style
sheet and redefine that style in a linked "print" style sheet, the
validator provides a warning. This doesn't make much sense because the
two style sheets will never be used at the same time, being for
different media types, and would normally be expected to redefine each
others styles, as that is usually the entire point of having a separate
print media style sheet.

I hope this can be fixed.
