I'm confused by this example. Didn't you already agree that HTML5 should 
*not* specify colors for links?

"HTML5 should not mandate the UA present <a>s in blue, but it should 
mandate the UA present <a>s like links (appearance:hyperlink). The color 
of course is a matter of visual themes and platform."
