You might be interested in some of the recent work by Leo Meyerovich  
et al. at Berkeley.  They wanted to parallelize CSS processing, and  
found they had to construct a simplified, orthogonal version of CSS  
and express their algorithms in terms of that subset.

This is very much work in progress, but there's a description and  
pointer to talk slides here:


Presumably their forthcoming HotPar paper will yield more details.
