Agree. This is one of the reasons why at the moment 
I prefer to adopt custom XML for CSS rendereing instead 
of using MathML (another major reason is verbosity of MathML).
We keep our style sheet as close to CSS2.1 as possible [1]
(since CSS2.1 is what we will really have soon) and expect
to make them compatible with Opera, Safari and Mozilla 
(if latest will fix inline-block/box/tables related bugs [2]).
After implementation of CSS3 generated content in browsers (it is needed to 
rearrange data)  it will be possible to transfer experience gained with 
our current "CSS friendly" markup to less CSS friendly MathML (at least Presentational).

It seems that this functionality is already present 
in CSS3 text module. So we need one property less.
