As many as makes sense.  Some authors will want to have their behavior
separate from their style, others will consider it all part of the same
presentation of their content.  CSS is about presentation, after all - and
like it or not, event handling and interactivity is part of presentation.
If it isn't, then we need to pull :hover, :active, :focus and :visited out
of CSS.
