I agree with the points OP raised, and think this should go further. It's quite haphazard how different CSS properties are supported at different times -- I think CSS should go the way of EcmaScript and have yearly releases with batches of new content in each. New ES editions get a lot of coverage, and this would help developers know what properties are supported and what is new. It's also much easier to remember (e.g.) "aspect-ratio was added in CSS2020" than "I think aspect-ratio is supported in most browsers now?". Having a set release schedule would help browsers reach more consistency in which features are supported -- if the CSSWG announced in, say, January what features would be exiting their drafting stage in that year, browser devs could (hopefully) coordinate releases.
