Re: XBL is (mostly) W3C redundant, and CSS is wrong W3C layer for semantic behavior *markup*

Essentially I have now formulated two rules by which to do correct W3C

1. Implementation specifications which conform to markup specifications are
conforming and are thus presentation.  Most of CSS is.  Any portions of
implementation specifications will which allow non-conformance to markup
specifications are "non-conforming semantic layer".

2. Isolate the "non-conforming semantic layer" portions from implementation
specifications, such that they can be separated from conforming portions.

This is was the ENTIRE point of my "CSS is wrong W3C layer for semantic"
portion of my thread.
