As far as the HTML quirks are concerned, they will all hopefully be 
specced.  The three modes are defined in the spec already and many of 
the quirks have already been documented, or are at least mentioned as an 
issue in the spec.

See this section:

Some of the rendering quirks may be addressed in the rendering section 
of this spec, though it would be nice if the CSS WG would document a lot 
of the relevant issues themselves.  However, I don't believe they have 
any plans to do so at this stage.
