Sadly, they were not tatooed "loser" when the working group discussed
this extensively, so I was unable to determine that these folks were, in
fact, "losers," or I would have, of course, ignored their opinion.

But seriously, it's not that @class is for presentation *only*, it's
that our needs (with URIs and CURIEs) might make typical CSS usage of
@class more difficult, and we didn't want to cause confusion on that front.
