Sorry if my suggestion is naive, but why about an attribute to opt out 
of CSSOM entirely? As you suggested in the www-style thread [1] "I would 
guess that the average author doesn't use CSSOM beyond the sugaring for 
the style attribute and maybe getComputedStyle() and even those hidden 
behind a JavaScript library."
As a web developer (I don't know about "average") I certainly agree.
