I believe all three issues listed in [1] to be resolved, as the 
corresponding spec text has been rewritten in the Editor’s Draft to not 
include the problematic statements (such as "The @charset rule has not 
effect on stylesheets"), or otherwise clarify the intended meaning.

The specifics are here:


If you believe this is not resolved, please point up which specific 
parts are still problematic in the Editor’s Draft.

There is additionally a mailing-list discussion about changing the 
behavior of the @charset byte sequence (that provides an encoding hint) 
or the at-rule (that ends up in CSSOM), but this is a separate issue 
from what is listed in [1].
