I don't really understand what you mean here. How are browser vendors not
interested in media types in styling? What has costly implications? What

Media-specific scripting is usually needed for media-specific presentation
or widgets. XBL2 is a way to define widgets, and it can be bound in a
media-specific way. Thus for instance one could create a set of widgets
for different window widths, and they would dynamically be swapped in as
the user changed the window size.
