Why at all not just ignore the warning? Your CSS *does validate* with it.
It's there just so that you pay attention to it.
I find it useful for example whem i forget to set the background and/or
color on html or body, because they were to be white and black, and that's
the default here. Then I go and fix it, but that's pretty much how useful it
Unless the user has a user stylesheet and sets the background on something.
But if the user is setting it, she should be savvy enough to set the color
too (or vice-versa), so to avoid problems that's she's obviously going to
run through almost everywhere.
