The CSS working group considers that CSS2.1 includes errata for CSS2,  
and as such, stylesheets that are invalid when checking against 2.1  
are invalid CSS2. My own opinion on the matter notwithstanding, I  
suggest you talk to www-style if you disagree with that stance.

Could you add this to bugzilla?

The validator only links to one spec, and for now indeed it is CSS2.
However, I agree that it should be changed to 2.1 eventually, and I  
added the following issue to bugzilla earlier today:
