The Working Group just discussed `Are 'Override declarations' still a thing?`, and agreed to the following resolutions:

* `RESOLVED: remove this from both levels of CSS cascade and replacing the reference with a note`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;dael> Topic: Are 'Override declarations' still a thing?<br>
&lt;dael> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/1385<br>
&lt;dael> fremy: From the look I took it's not referenced by CSS. I think it's fine to drop, but I don't know if somebody has a strong opinion. Not easy without enough people on the call.<br>
&lt;dael> dbaron: I think we (Gecko) did remove the override stylesheet API if we had it.<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Let's leave it as that. We have two options and we'll come back when there's more people.<br>
&lt;dael> fremy: Or we can resolve and if someone disagrees we re-open.<br>
&lt;dael> fremy: In the interest of progress.<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: That's fair. I would have liked to see an opinion fromm Tab with the issue.<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Tab and I don't have an opinion. We discussed last week.<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Looking at the issue the last comment suggests to make a note in last level of cascade spec that we can simplify and have a note.<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: I'm happy tot ake edits to remove but we can add a note pointing to it that there was a thing that no one impl.<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: This is only next level of css casacde?<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Both.<br>
&lt;dael> fantasai: Both are in CR.<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Obj to removing this from both levels of CSS cascade and replacing the reference with a note?<br>
&lt;fantasai> s/Both./Both. If the feature doesn't exist, it doesn't exist anywhere./<br>
&lt;dael> RESOLVED: remove this from both levels of CSS cascade and replacing the reference with a note<br>
&lt;fantasai> s/CR./CR anyways./<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Thanks for taking on these edits fantasai<br>
