Another comment I am thinking about:

Style and user styling

Quite a lot of work went into CSS. It is also considered pretty normal to  
style XML with CSS.

For accessibility purposes it is helpful to have something like the CSS2  
Cascade rules (which represented a change from CSS1 for enhanced  
accessibility). It turns out that text is about the only area where it is  
easy for user styles to make sense, so it seems a shame that there is no  
mechanism anticipated by the spec for using CSS and taking advantage of  
the cascading of rules that are important to the user, where appropriate.  
Since, as XML, it is obviously possible just to associate a CSS style  
sheet, it would be nice to explicitly recognise this possibility within  
the spec.
