Mostly because it feels wrong/ugly/hacked.  Partly because it blurs the 
lines for MVC separation.  Partly because it feels to me that the 
benefit of using css selectors for convenience in selecting elements is 
being carried to the point of using all of css for convenience, rather 
than separating the two.  Wouldn't it make more sense to at least 
separate keep them in separate documents.

include something like an svg document rather than just a raster image?
