@tabatkins You linked the HTML Markup Validation service. I used this validator for CSS validation: https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator.
From my understanding it is hosted on the w3,org domain. Unless someone defaced this domain, I believe this is linked to the W3C validation service. I may be confused here but multiple people believe this to be the "official" W3C CSS validation service. We even have schools apparently relying on this for their evaluations.

@sideshowbarker Thanks for the answer. That's actually really helpful. I am not sure I understand why one validation service can support the deployment of your patch and not the other though. Different languages? I believe https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator has been developed in Java.

I don't know who has control over what considering how confusing this is but could the team in charge of https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator mark it as deprecated? In it's current state, this validator is out of standard but still uses the domain "w3.org". As I mentioned earlier, we had customers relying on it and we even had interns telling us their schools rely on this service for their evaluation. I think it is a problem serious enough to consider depreciation.
