Boarf. "bgcolor" seems to me perfectly simple, easy and maintainable if
you just make it

 *[bgcolor] { background-color: attr(bgcolor); }

with an attr() notation extended to all properties.

We discussed the "size of code" problem just a few messages ago.
|bgcolor="red"| vs. |style="background-color: red"|.... Just count.
