Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-2020] Should cascade 3 and 4 both be in the snapshot? (#5111)

The snapshot [already mentions](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-2020/#css) that level 4 supersedes level 3, (just as it mentions that other specs replace certain sections of CSS 2.1):

> CSS Cascading and Inheritance Level 4 [CSS-CASCADE-4]
> Extends and supersedes [CSS-CASCADE-3], describing how to collate style rules and assign values to all properties on all elements. By way of cascading and inheritance, values are propagated for all properties on all elements.

But it would be helpful, at the very least, to edit the entry for level 3 to indicate that it is fully superseded. And maybe to group the two together in the list, so it is easier to see them as a pair.

But dropping fully superseded specs, or creating a separate list of them, makes sense too.

> to distinguish such specs from other old RECs which are unmaintained and wrong

That would be the distinction [in the W3C process](https://www.w3.org/2019/Process-20190301/#rec-rescind) between a “superseded” spec and an “obsolete” one. I don't know if we want to mention obsolete specs at all in the snapshot, though.
