I agree with the disagreement and object to the decision of the HTML WG.

There has been some activity on www-style to found a solution for this
problem as it clearly doesn't solely apply to XHTML 2.0 — think of
xhtml1:img, xhtml1:object — and I believe the outcome of that was that
it doesn't fit in the CSS model.

I hope the HTML WG can discuss this with the CSS WG to find a feasible
solution before XHTML 2.0 enters last call or propose another mechanism
for embedding.
