yes, i agree. this would make sense and do exactly what CSS was meant 
for: seperating style and content.

i know this example of yours was just a rough shot, and i consider my 
worries removed, at last the HTML part of it won't change a lot, and now 
i wonder how this would affect links given in the document, but not 
referenced in the stylesheet. i mean: as i understood, the image should 
be added to the div's content (where? at the top? the bottom?) and every 
link having an image-map-region property will be replaced by clickable 
regions inside the image. what about those links which don't have this? 
will they be simple text links below/above the imagemap? hm. while 
asking those questions i guess this would make sense. one simply had to 
settle on how to do this exactly.
