Default background-color required!

I've just been caught again by the W3C, using a style sheet that validated perfectly a few months ago, but is now generating warnings about lack of background-color for text elements such as h1, h2, links etc.

It's not so bad this time, because I don't have any elements on this site with links or headings on coloured backgrounds, but when I first discovered the change in requirements late last year, it was on a site that did have coloured boxes, and I had to duplicate all the style elements and add background colours to every single instance.

I know this wasn't a requirement in about March last year when I first created the style I'm about to fix, because it validated then, and also later in the year, about May, when I made some further changes. So when did this change, why did it change, and how do I keep up-to-date so that I don't get these nasty surprises (and become embarrassed by my little brag box at the bottom of the page)?
