Do you want to know how the CSS WG works? Fantasai has written about:csswg, An Inside View of the CSS Working Group at W3C.
Resolved: The listing of multiple text shadows shall be layered top to bottom (i.e. the first shadow is on top). This is a change from REC-CSS2.
Rationale: Changing the order to top-to-bottom makes
text-shadow consistent with
background, and the proposed
content fallback extension. Multiple text shadow support is not widely implemented (we only know of Konqueror shipping support at the moment), and in most designs it won’t make much of a difference if the order is switched.
Resolved: Issue 1 (clarify ‘width’ on columns and column groups) closed with No Change.
