I would like to review what the actual computed value lines you used were, 
in the context of the spec as it has been edited. It would satisfy my 
comments if you publish another (LC)WD draft.

CSS2 is a spec that never exit CR, and has hundreds of outstanding 
comments, including serious errata. Treating it as "mature" is probably 
not the best way of looking at it. But if you want your spec to depend on 
that instead of the revision of that spec that's had all the errors fixed, 
I guess that's your choice...
