I think you forgot to click on the link there. The resolutions
were recorded as follows, let me quote:

    RESOLVED: adopt the principles in http://wiki.csswg.org/ideas/functional-notation
    RESOLVED: adopt the proposed changes to exclusions in
              http://wiki.csswg.org/ideas/functional-notation except
              for the suggestion to unify rect() and rectangle()

None of which is inconsistent with your concerns.
