But a professional designer has to understand the tools and medium they
are using, so they have to know that one feature is just a macro
for some other properties.  They need to do this even if they use
a WYSIWG editor because HTML + CSS is not a WYSIWYG medium.

The only way of controlling layout without that knowledge is to use
semantic classes and let someone else's style sheet deal with the
detailed knowledge.
