By the way, I didn't mean for that to sound like a slam against  
implementors, and especially not against those who have engaged me in  
dialogue. I do appreciate having this forum to try to argue my case.  
I believe my arguments represent a large faction of authors who are  
advancing CSS by using newer (and sometimes not-so-new) CSS  
properties and values, and trying to do so in a way that still works  
reasonably well in UAs that have varying levels of support for those  
properties and values.
