I agree with your statement.  I think it's good to have the capability of a 
self-contained document.

I also think that the STYLE element is overused.  Supporting enclosed 
documents is great, but I submit that the STYLE element is used for much 
more than that.

I do think that allowing STYLE anywhere but head is dangerous, as is the 
STYLE attribute.
