They're validation errors as deprecated link forms.

> Caveat about this review: This is a large PR, and I went through it relatively quickly. It is quite likely that I missed some things. With that said, overall it looks good, and here are my detailed commit-per-commit comments:
> * [First commit](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/pull/4850/commits/8c9c7ab16d6bb8787dbcf6d933c5d0df6667b7a1) seems ok, except that some `propinst-*` classes got dropped in the build output (e.g. `propinst-pause-before` in aural.html). I am not sure that they served a purpose, so maybe it's OK that they're gone, but if they did something useful, it would be good to figure out what killed them and to bring them back.

Oh, uh, that I missed. That I should look into at least, because it makes me doubt correctness of the whole thing.

> * [7th commit](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/pull/4850/commits/e13136fd4891eaaddabaf39b0775f26470a5d02d) somewhat subjective, but OK

Note that this is very different now the content has a max-width of 50em, rather than being the entire width of the viewport. At the current width and font-size, it's not very readable. That said very much the goal just to get this publishable, rather than perfect stylistically!

> * [8th commit](https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/pull/4850/commits/e01302f038a3a7b70adf86d7d6ad022562834bc5) The statement that no UA would do anything with bare links is not correct. For instance, presto-based opera would show the `rel=first` and `rel=index` links in the info panel. While that UA is no longer relevant, there may be others. That said, I am not sure this will cause issues for anyone in practice. But do we solve anything by removing them?

AFAIK, no current UA does anything with them. We need need to avoid emitting `CSS-properties` there (which is a validation error as an undefined relation), however.

As far as I can tell, bikeshed happily accepts both. Not a blocker, but I'm curious.

Good question. I remember seeing something weird happening to the styling with it nested somewhere, but I can't reproduce this now.

Again, more concerned about getting this publishable than perfect. If we want a better TOC for long documents we should perhaps consider doing this more generically for W3C specs.
