That sounds great, as long as it's done by reference to CSS parsing 
(e.g. by saying that at the end of the selector string end-of-stylesheet 
rules apply).  Just please don't go write a separate, incompatible, 
selector parsing spec.  ;)

My personal vote would be to not throw on anything handled by existing 
CSS error recovery rules (which happens to be the behavior of every UA 
that implements said rules right now).
