I agree this is an issue, but not a bug.

When the validator processes a CSS file directly
  -> A direct CSS url was given
  -> File Upload
then the validator does not know what type of (X)HTML
is using this file.

Two ways of solving this issue is to either provide
versions of the code for all types of (X)HTML, or to
let the user choose the type of HTML involved.
