I don't see a problem with this limitation, but perhaps the next 
draft should clarify this, particularly with regard to MEDIA.  I 
assume that MEDIA=all is implicitly used for all inline style, 
regardless of what MEDIA values are used in the STYLE or LINK 
elements, but without this being stated in the draft I'm just making 
an assumption.
