Yes, that was the point of eratta-ing CSS 2.1, which in turn caused
these test cases to be written for CSS 2.1. Because all errata need
tests.

In that sense, the subject line of this thread is misleading or
incomplete. Its actually about new CSS 2.1 tests for CSS 2.1 errata.

In the sense that the errata are not checked in yet, yes. In the sense
that we already discussed it and agreed exactly what the erratum
should say (and thus, these tests and the errata will be testing the
same thing), no.

There was an agenda item in Sydney about publishing a new draft of CSS
2.1 (be it called CSS 2.2 or CSS 2.1 second edition or whatever) that
rolls in all the errata. And also indicates, per section, where CSS3
has extended or changed the definition from 2.1.
