Well, it does seem possible that style information for audio, or other,
domains *might* need different selection mechanisms or degrees of
parameterizability, and that in some instances other domains might
require more maniipulation capability than CSS provides (an author might
be satisfied with CSS for text styling, but need to use DSSSL to do
content modifications for audio presentation, for instance).
