HSL is just a different representation of the RGB color model. Since  
the CSS spec says "All RGB colors are specified in the sRGB color  
space", HSL too is sRGB because it can't be any other way.

HSL and RGB are directly convertible from one to the other, and are  
not based on a particular color space. HSL is just as ambiguous as to  
the exact color you get as RGB.
