So is using proprietary extensions in a way specified e.g. in CSS 2.1
making the stylesheet an invalid CSS stylesheet? Or is it merely making
it just an invalid CSS 2.1 (or CSS 3, 1, 42) stylesheet?

Does the validator have a mode that allows checking against a certain
level/revision combination *plus* allowing proprietary extensions
(checking their syntax only, of course)? Which profile do I use for that?

Regards, Christian.
