> The full name is Cascading Style Sheets Level 2 Revision 1. Why should this be blown up further into something like Cascading Style Sheets Level 2 Revision 1, 2nd Edition when it just gets revised further?

Essentially nobody calls it by its full name, though. Even within the WG the full name essentially doesn't exist. I won't disagree it seems silly in its complete form, but I'm much more concerned about people looking at 2.1 after 2.whatever gets published because of references to CSS 2.1. Arguably where we went wrong was including ".1" in the obvious name of a spec for level 2 in the first place. 🙃

Gotta go fast.
