Hi, Patrick.

You wrote: "You're not applying meaning, you're
applying a look."

If you think a hyperlink is just a look, part of the
display of a hypertext document, then that's how I
think of it. So you think it's OK that "hypertext" is
a value of the "display" CSS attribute? 

You wrote: "It may display right, but you're making it
impossible for ..."

...any device or user agent that doesn't support CSS
to provide anything other than an unfamiliar plaintext
XML file to someone who relies on CSS when they use a
braille reader or a speech reader or hands-free
navigation to comprehend web content.

How about a W3C document like:
"Custom Mark-up Techniques for Web Content
Accessibility Guidelines 1.0"?

Some people who use custom mark-up care enough to
structure their mark-up in accordance with it. Count
me in that group, at least.
