I am curious why you want to do this - the tool as distributed tries as 
much as possible to stick to the CSS specifications, meaning that 
modifications you would make would get you away from actually checking 
standard CSS.

Anyway, there is a couple of documents that could be of use to you, in 
particular:

http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/README.html
has an overview of the classes of the validator, and a good starting 
point to browsing the source in context

http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/HOWTO.html
has some info on creating new properties.

Hope this helps.
