It doesn't matter. Page authors will always "win" without even trying.
To make reasonable use of CSS for interesting effects authors must use
classes. Since users can't predict author's classes, they can't override
them in their user style sheets unless they update their user style
sheets to reflect all of the classes in the universe.
