> UA processing can simply use XSLT or behavioral extensions as I mention
above
CSS BE is working draft that was not updated since 1999. Thus I assume it
is droped,
and in any case as you said yourself it is more complex then Xlink.
As to XSLT I don't understand why should I use XSL if document can be
rendered
directly using CSS without any transformations. So situation is almost
funny,
you can render document using CSS, you can add images, objects etc. 
using CSS generated content and there remains the only one 
thing that you can't do - you can't follow links. Is it OK?
Style language is not just colors and font styles, 
style language is way to turn markup into user friendly page,
that can be viewed, browsed etc. And the more powerful is style language,
the more effectively you can use markup.
