That was actually the core of my question. :-)

I did reply to David and Jens before noticing that the list was in CC, 
so you did not see those messages. The reasons for these issues have all 
been well explained :-), which leaves two suggestions for discussion:

Should #autoXXXXXXX be more appropriately named or better described in 
the validator, so others won't wonder about the same thing? I am now 
assuming those are temporary internal tags to reference inline statments.

Should the validator maybe recognize common unsupported items, like 
"expression" and mention that this it is not supported by CSS standards? 
That could help a lot of people who do not read the whole 
specifications. :-)
