You might be interested in this page which links to a few of the
relevant discussions.
http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/StyleAttribute

And it's apparently ISSUE-3 on the tracker
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/3

My personal favorite of all the solutions is to extend the sytle
attribute because it's more backward compatible and less traumatic
than dropping @style in favor of <style scoped>.

I'm sure any good solutions are welcome at the moment.
