Hi Ian,

I can see the value in this (but then, I also see the value in media types  
in styling - something it seems some browser makers are not really  
interested in), and I agree with David's concern that it can have some  
pretty costly implications.

Can you explain why XBL2 is part of the solution here? It seems you have  
something in mind that I don't understand yet.
