It would remove the need for a validating parser to recognize the 'id' 
attribute is of type ID.

Styling isn't really information. You could have distinquished it as 
such, but that might be a wrong observation. Moving styling inside the 
document takes away the advantages of user specific style sheet or style 
sheet switching where the author could provide multiple styles for the 
same page and leave the choice to the user.

Embedding everything in the document takes away all those advantages and 
clutters the semantics, just like <font> did.
