Perhaps you misunderstood.  If the ability to "create" links via CSS is 
added to the spec, chances are most UAs will implement it exactly as 
it's specified.  The question is how to specify it in a way that will 
make the functionality useful while at the same time not making it too 
intrusive.

Out of a similar balancing act came user stylesheets, it seems to me.
