+1. I think having a separate HTML element is the wrong solution, but a  
CSS property called 'reset'[1] and a DOM property called 'restrict'[2]  
could achieve the same goal but without "polluting" HTML with stuff that  
isn't really HTML related and which semantics doesn't make sense in an  
HTML context.

The CSS property has already been mentioned on this list, but the  
discussion faded kind of quick so I would like to bring it up again.

1. With the possible values of '*' (resets the inheritance and cascade of  
all properties) and all CSS property values defined in CSS1+2+3.
2. Not sure which values this property should have yet.
