Ah, I didn't explain what I meant. For the non-HTML player this will
work. But if we have an actual HTML page and use the CSS file as
defined in the doc for it without any further changes, the rules will
apply to all videos on the page in a browser. Maybe the web page
author doesn't want that.

Right. If the stylesheet is used with an @import call, that should be
fine. I guess I was wondering what if the @import call is not made and
the CSS file just pain added to a Web page. Probably a non-problem
then, since we are describing the @import use.
