CW:: "rather than being embedded in the document itself? The inline STYLE 
attribute is, in my opinion, something that is useful enough in a large 
enough set of scenarios, to warrant continued inclusion in HTML rather than 
being relegated to the status of deprecated legacy.

WL: I'm very late to this party but as I understand it if someone wants to 
disinclude <STYLE> as in inline element in XHTML they are perfectly free, 
AM (after modulraization) to disinclude that element from their own version 
of the language? Then the "market" will decide whether to use the 
<STYLE>-free version or not. The browser shouldn't care so why should the 
WG? If the WAI declares some flavor of XHTML to be taboo then those who 
give a damn won't use that version. The ability to set one's own 
"standards" is heady stuff indeed even though it leaves one short of a 
sense of "control" - which seems to have permeated some deliberations herein?

What am I overlooking?
