Could the standard at least recommend something? This is a problem with most present implementations; sure you can pick a style, but if you did it in the UA, it's gone with the next page click.

If the standard at least suggested what entailed maintenance of style and what entailed ditching it, it would send UAs down a somewhat consistent path, but constrain any UA to that pattern alone in case they came up with something better (and in case of stepping on the toes of other standards...).
