I have some questions:

1 - The text refers to media query. Is it a media_query or a
media_query_list as defined in
http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-mediaqueries/#syntax? I assume it is about a
media_query_list. The serialization rules for a list of media queries do not
mention any sorting of the queries in the list and thus is not good for
comparison because it would then lead to "(color) and (min-width: 100px)" !=
(min-width: 100px) and (color)" for example. Should serialization rules for
a list of media queries change?

2 - Is mediaText really needed as parameter of MediaQueryCallbacks? Being a
serialization of the media query it may be different of the original query
and user would not have an easy way to recognize it. In other hand it may be
very easy to provide this kind of information to callbacks using Javascript
closures. For example:

function mediumCallback(query, value)
    alert(query + " = " + value);

function addMediumListener(query)
    window.styleMedia.addMediumListener(query, mediumCallback);

addMediumListener("tv and (color)");

 Any kind of information may be supplied to the callbacks this way and the
media query, specially the serialized media query,  may not necessarily the
most useful information in all situations.

3 - Is the order in which the callbacks must be called specified?
