"There aren't any [CSS1 user agents], so in the real world that really isn't an
important consideration. Any new UAs wouldn't implement CSS1 anyway, they'd
implement the CSS1 profile of CSS2 or CSS3."

Consider the CSS1 Recommendation dead, and let's close this bug. The alternative
is to generate a faithful scanner and parser for CSS1, which would, for example,
have to forbid characters outside the repertoire of ISO 8859-1 yet allow bare
digits at the start of class names. What other details have I forgotten? Who
would be willing to uncover those details? Who would implement them?
