1) this is likely to be rare. Of course there were changes from CSS1  
to CSS2 and then to CSS2.1, but the case of valid properties becoming  
deprecated and disappearing from one version to another is less likely  
to happen now that the process checks implementations before the  
Recommendation status.

And even then, if one's stylesheet uses constructs that are not (no  
longer) OK in the state-of-the-art of CSS, isn't it better to have a  
checker actually point it out?
