OK. I see your point. Even though this would esentially solve the
problem I would be hesitant to support such a solution. If two elements
mean the same thing on a semantic level and only differ in presentation
we're essentially returning to the HTML3 model of mixing content and
I'm not claiming I have a better solution, but I feel we strive to
separate content from presentation and keep the semantic model as
unambiguous as possible.
