This looks really cool! Though some of these rules seem incompatible with  
the CSS pre-processor / Anolis conventions.

For terms we use <dfn> but we use the title attribute as well to provide  
detail, more or less per these rules:

If everyone followed those rules we could have cross-references between  
all specifications when that feature is implemented a little better. I  
suppose we can also alter those rules a little if people prefer a  
different style.
