[[Email. Every. Single. Day. "Dear Nicolas, normalize.css does not pass W3C CSS
validation. Please fix this."]]

The validator emits several "Unknown pseudo-element or pseudo-class" errors
normalize.css and several "unknown vendor extension" for some vendor-prefixed
properties.

So it seems like the current default is to report warnings instead of errors
for vendor-prefixed properties.

I suggest making that also be the default behavior for vendor-prefixed
pseudo-elements and pseudo-classes; that is, report warnings by default for
those too, instead of errors.
