Point taken. It's about making the document understandable, readable,  
*and* attractive.

I totally agree. HTML should be describing documents in a useful  
manner. Minimizing presentational features is a good idea as long as  
it does not reduce the capabilities of the language to correctly  
describe the content in a usable manner.
