Is it worth calling out other at-risk pieces, like the resize: must?
(and the ellipsis: string)

> ellipsed

Android has:
> getEllipsizedText

I'm familiar w/ ellipsized, I don't think there's any particular
reason to use "ellipsed" instead (the "dictionaries" for "ellipsed"
just say past tense of ellipse which makes no sense).

> 4.4. outline-color property
> The outline-color property accepts all colors, as well as the keyword invert. Invert is expected to perform a color inversion on the pixels on the screen. This is a common trick to ensure the focus border is visible, regardless of color background.
> Conformant UAs may ignore the invert value on platforms that do not support color inversion of the pixels on the screen.
> If the UA does not support the invert value then it must reject that value at parse-time, and the initial value of the outline-color property is the currentColor [CSS3COLOR] keyword.

This definition of behavior doesn't really match what OS X does.

A picture of what it does is included here:

> Note: Since the outline does not affect formatting (i.e., no space is left for it in the box model), it may well overlap other elements on the page.

Please consider adding a note "for accessibility purposes, just
turning off or otherwise messing with this property is likely to
result in an application which isn't accessible and will result in
accessibility people threatening you (and governments refusing to buy
your products)"

> 5.1. resize property
> Initial: none

I'm not sure if it's worth noting that UA styles may have other values
for specific nodes (e.g. iframes or textareas),...

> Selecting the ellipsis should select the ellipsed text. If all of the ellipsed text is selected, UAs should show selection of the ellipsis.

Firefox 38.0.1 doesn't do this.

Using the example (rendered):
<div class="crawlbar">
CSS is awesome, especially when you can scroll
to see extra text instead of just
having it overlap other text by default.
</div>

tripple tap on the text (OS X), the entire line selects, and when
copied, the entire text is copied, but the ellipsis isn't copied. I'm
not sure how many implementations you think support this, but please
don't count Firefox as one of them

> Some information on these formats can be found on wikipedia.

Wikipedia is a proper noun.

> image cursors
> general purpose cursors

could these section headings be styled somehow?

This should also have: resize: both

Most browsers seem to have moved to this.
