Thanks for the feedback. I personally don't believe that such a
designation is necessary.

I have now noticed that it is possible to choose the CSS version at the
 front page. I didn't see this before because I was using the link
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer on my website to get to
the validator and this defaulted to CSS 2.1 (this used to work before
the update). A classical EBCAK on my behalf - apologies. I have now
changed the link to
http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/check/referer?profile=css3 and that
works as expected.

It would be ideal if the validator could display the CSS version it
used. Maybe even a list of all the profiles available for re-validation
(similar to the HTML validator), so you could try out which CSS version
your stylesheets validates against.

Thanks again for your time!

Daniel
