Simon is correct, this is a current specification which we only just
moved to CR, and it should not be marked as 'retired'.

OK, but I'm also interested to find out how it got so labelled in the
first place.

Wait. It looks as if "retired" is just a heading for an empty section?
 (If so , I can see how that would be confusing. The section should
 say "none" or something, after the heading.

Looking at
there are four specs listed as retired, and css-cascade-3 is not one
of them.
