Perhaps you might submit a patch that adds support for a "CSS 2 + non- 
standard, proprietary Microsoft extensions". It might get accepted by  
the QA team.

Personally, I'd put the blame with Microsoft for coming up with new  
properties without running them through the standards process (it  
isn't as if they aren't a W3C member organisation), rather then  
calling people names because the tools they write to test code  
against standards only support standards.
