Yes, I think this was intended as a change.

All the changes to the selectors are summarized in one line in
appendix B1: "An extended selector mechanism, including child
selectors, adjacent selectors, and attribute selectors." Maybe the
relaxation of the syntax of class selectors (more than one is now
allowed) and pseudo-classes could have been made explicit.

No, it's not an error in CSS1. The syntax was restricted on purpose,
to make implementations easier and to gain some experience.
