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).

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.
