More precisely, it was of no benefit to the typical author, because the
formatting of the information was controlled by the browser, and, by 
choice of browser, by the user, whereas authors want to brand this
information, which requires that they have explicit control of 
presentation.

However, the more obvious change of this nature was that Netscape dropped
the ability of users to configure how headings were displayed (i.e. a
sort of primitive user style sheet capability).
