Validation, in general, isn't a worthwhile thing. Most validators are not up-to-date and will show errors for things that are perfectly fine.  Test the property on your own in as many browsers as you can, and decide how you want to deal with the support.

As a side note, `@apply` never showed up in an official spec, was never accepted by a Working Group as something to work on, and was not implemented by any browser.  It was a proposal that the Polymer team wrote a polyfill for, and we later decided it wasn't a good idea.  That's a very different situation than the 'appearance' property.
