Playing devil's advocate, some could answer that you need to use an ID 
selector. But I disagree with that.  Setting an explicit ID on an 
element makes it special, and adds semantics. And once again, it's not 
possibvle to copy/paste the element (and the element itself) preserving 
its intrinsic style.

So I definitely agree with you. Exactly my point.
