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

== Convert CSS2 to use Bikeshed ==
I would like to convert CSS2 to Bikeshed, for the following reasons:

 * Stylistic consistency with other CSS specs (for the sake of readability, etc., especially including the xref box to other refs)
 * Making it easier to xref things to/from other Bikeshed specs
 * Getting rid of generated code from the repo (i.e., the built copy of the spec)


 * Accidental changes to normative text
 * Not being able to generate a multipage version and breaking xref links to it (I think we can do this with post-processing with not too much difficulty, though)

https://github.com/gsnedders/csswg-drafts/commits/css2-bs is some vague start towards converting it, albeit with 488 linking errors, and obviously bogus references to other later CSS modules.

I'm happy to do further work on converting it if the group thinks this is useful.
