"
For this specification to be advanced to Proposed Recommendation, there 
must be at least two independent, interoperable implementations of each

"
98 required tests are considered valid and do not meet CR exit criteria.
"
http://test.csswg.org/harness/results/css-backgrounds-3_dev/grouped/

corrections.
The test suite may also need more tests (basic tests and complex tests).
