CSS development is exactly as public as HTML is.  Everything done in the CSSWG
is done on public mailing lists or in public and logged IRC rooms.  There is no
significant difference in the development of HTML and CSS in the dimensions you
mention.

(This is irrelevant to the actual merits of this bug; it just bugs me when
people assume that there's something magical about one spec group or another.)
