Your FAQs state:

"The CSS Validator validates your style sheet against some profile, e.g. CSS Level 1 or CSS Level 2. Some browser 
Vendors however extend these profiles by new properties like Microsoft did with the scrollbar-base-color or filter 
property or Mozilla with the -moz-opacity property. The Validator is not aware of these properties and using them makes 
your style sheet invalid in terms of the CSS specifications. Either get rid of those properties or live with the fact, 
that your style sheets don't validate. You cannot have both."

The statement "Either get rid of those properties or live with the fact, that your style sheets don't validate. You 
cannot have both." is rather childish of you.  The scrollbar properties for example, are valid with Internet Explorer 
and are simply ignored by other browsers therefore, their inclusion should not be summarily denied.  Get off your high 
horse and cut us some slack.
