I do NOT believe this is true. I would argue that, while authors 
tasked with large sites may understand the efficiency, they are also 
the least likely to take the time to learn how to apply CSS2 or 
CSS3 to documents. Their subordinates, or others who work on 
"small or personal" sites, are MUCH more likely to comprehend and 
apply CSS2 or CSS3 first. And before THEM, those I personally refer 
to as the "technical housewives", i.e., those who have unlimited time 
at home to learn new tech, will have mastered it. I guess what I'm 
really saying is that I believe use of the standards grows from the 
bottom up.
