Unfortunately market forces ensure that the wrong people get that control.
CSS tries to separate out that part from the HTML etc. which provides the
information actually needed by the consumer.

Whilst W3C has done a lot to encourage features that are not market driven,
but for the benefit of conumers, it cannot ignore the wants of those
paying for web site design, and it can't stop people abuse the structural
markup in HTML for purely presentational purposes.
