SelenIT has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-cascade] Are 'Override declarations' still a thing? ==
Historically, the CSS Cascading and Inheritance spec [lists](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-cascade/#cascade-origin) 'Override declarations' among other cascading origins. But it appears that the spec that they refer to [has never been really implemented](http://stackoverflow.com/a/41417273/2533215), and 'Override declarations' are now a purely theoretical concept with no connection to the reality. What about dropping them at all, in order to make the cascading algorithm simpler?
