New rules. I changed the code and updated the validator a few days ago in
order to resolve some open bugs.



So the validator is behaving as expected here.

It’s outdated and superseded by http://www.w3.org/TR/mediaqueries-4/


  - http://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries/#media-types “In addition, the
    following deprecated media types are defined. Authors must not use
    these media types; instead, it is recommended that they select
    appropriate media features that better represent the aspect of the
    device that they are attempting to style against.”

  - http://drafts.csswg.org/mediaqueries/#mf-deprecated “The following
  media features are deprecated. They kept for backward compatibility, but
  are not appropriate for newly written style sheets. Authors must not use
  them. ... To query for the size of the viewport (or the page box on page
  media), the width, height and aspect-ratio media features should be used,
  rather than device-width, device-height and device-aspect-ratio.”

I should refine the validator to emit a more-helpful message for this case.
To remind myself, I’ve opened an issue:
