@John
While it's not explicitly worded, I gather the meaning is roughly equivalent to
"you have no _color_ specified", not "you have no _value_ specified".  After
all, "transparent" is not a color (and according to the spec, it's not even a
'value', but a 'keyword'), and using it does not get around the possible problem
the warning is designed to warn you about (that you possibly will not be able to
easily read the text).

@Robin
It doesn't say it's not valid - in fact it says it "validates" - it merely lists
"warnings" (not "errors") which _could_ cause problems.

The statement could be reworded to leave less room for confusion.
