This is indeed a far from ideal situation... Ideally we'd have enough
resources (staff and volunteers) to have created a 2.1 profile for the
CSS validator long ago, and maintain it through the REC status of the
specification. We will actually have a working profile for 2.1 around
the time it gets to REC.

Looks very much like one, yes. 
Would you mind entering it into the database?

Thank you
