For your information, I started a discussion at the C|NET's Builder Buzz
community to poll for other viewpoints:
"Can we get by with no style?"

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
I have these preliminary observations from the first day running:
1. They can get by without it (you are not likely to get petitions on
www-html for the return of style attribute...)
2. There may (or may not) be an issue with DOM. Dynamically changing the
presentation of a single element is simple now, but will be (a little? a
lot?) more convolved if you can't just stick it in a style attribute.
