I do understand usuario's <wrapper> proposal slightly different from
<div>: Section 4.5.13 of the spec generally states that the <div>
element is conveying structure, but not semantics.
Usuario's <wrapper> is not structural, but purely presentational. It
should actually not be there at all from an HTML point of view, but is
necessary for CSS reasons.
I agree with Bjartur Thorlacius' point that it makes more sense to
enhance CSS the way that presentational markup gets totally obsolete in
the future - but the idea of an element that is explicitly
non-structural does not look that odd to me.
