CSS Validator ???

I had previously validated my CSS stylesheets with the old validator.  
Things that came up as "warnings" did not prevent it from validating.  
Now, with this new validator, my stylesheets are getting a huge amount 
of "warnings" for the following:

"Same colors for color and background-color in two contexts..."

Thus for example I have the same color specified for color in a link and 
for a background in another element such as a span, and I am getting 
this warning and my stylesheet is not validating.  How come and is there 
any way to validate a stylesheet with this new valdiator when it uses 
the same color in two different contexts?  I didn't see anything in the 
FAQs or documentation about this issue (or why things that are 
"warnings" are now preventing validation when in the previous validator 
it would validate with "warnings").
