I think this is fine for several purposes.  The problem I see with 
this, is that if we can never specify the way something looks, we'll 
all be left to live in a world of monotony.  If the author can't 
decide any of the rendering (such as frames or columns), everything 
will end up being the same (especially considering that MS and 
Netscape will both have the same default styles, and most people will 
never change them).
