Yeah, that's fair enough.
Righ now I can't find any browsers that implement <style scoped>. Unless
<link scoped> is preferred by vendors than <style scoped>, I'd rather get
one implemented and proven to work before we add more, so I still haven't
added <link scoped>. To make sure I don't forget about this, though, I've
filed it as a bug and will mark it LATER.
