Any solution that doesn't rule out HTTP headers can't be bad.  Any
solution that involves META can't be good:) [Note that the entire
issue of a default stylesheet language arises only because of the
style attribute.  Every kludge begets another...]

The best solution, SGML wise, is probably to use data notations for
attributes (i.e. a declared value of DATA followed by a notation
name).  XML doesn't have this yet.

In the future, a radically different solution may also be possible.
I'll save that rant ("CLASS considered harmful") for another time:)
