Error validating style sheet with "transparent" background color against CSS 3 profile

Dear validator list,


the CSS validator seems to be erroneous when it comes to a validation
against the CSS 3 profile using "transparent" background color
values:

http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?uri=http://uitest.com/bin/css/default.css&warning=1&profile=css3

...since the CSS 3 Color CR doesn't state anything like "transparent is not
a color value" [1]. The validator wrongly complains about the "volume"
property ("Parse Error - [empty string]"), too.

Can you say something about these issues (and/or fix them)?


Regards,
 Jens.
