There is no specification for what is a "valid CSS stylesheet", there
are only specifications for what is e.g. a "valid CSS 2.1 stylesheet".

No. I also note that there aren't so many specifications for proprietary
extensions that would actually allow telling whether a specific syntax
is allowed or not, at least it would be difficult and error prone.
