No. If you eventually end up with a DOM that is like:

  STYLE
   #comment
   #text
   #comment
   FOO
    #text
   #text

... it is unclear what the UA is supposed to extract from the STYLE  
element to pass on to the styling system. The "type" attribute might  
impose different ways of doing that though. With text based versus XML  
based styling languages for example...
