Oh Dave how can I answer that without pretending I know everything.
Great question. I wish I could express myself as simply as you did when
trying to convince people about my views.

One thing is the 'bloat ware' characterisation many people use for CSS.
It is something most people in this list have in mind. The more heavy
CSS becomes, the more it loses one of it's greatest value: power in a
lightweight package. 

The other is that browsers take their time to adjust to specs, making a
developers life difficult in the meantime. 

Of course, all the above is nonsense in many cases, but very solid in
others. Specifically about your problem though, you can already achieve
what you want with BeCSS.

If you want to, I can make an IE behavior for you, although I will
possibly ask for the equivalent N6 one in return ;-)

Kindest regards,

Manos
