It's just that the examples Jean-Guilhem Rouel gave already must be
validated as he describes in CSS2:

<http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/syndata.html#parsing-errors>

I have requested several months ago to clearly state at the CSS
validator's homepage that it - despite trying to create the impression -
actually does *not* validate CSS2 in a reliable way. This hasn't been
done as of today :-(
<http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=892>

Note that CSS parsers in actual shipping products seem to be much more
conforming than the W3C CSS validator...
