Hi,

Would the CSS community and working group object to the XBL2 specification 
including the following two CSS features?

First, a 'binding' property, defined to take a list of one or more <url>s 
or the keyword 'none', which would act as a binding mechanism to specify 
one or more XBL bindings to apply to an element.

Second, a pseudo-class ':xbl-bound-element' that matches an XBL bound 
element.

The proposed processing model for these features is described in the XBL 
specification, which you can find at either of these locations:

   http://www.mozilla.org/projects/xbl/xbl2.html
   http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/2006/xbl2/Overview.html?content-type=text/html;%20charset=utf-8

Currently the features using the "-xbl-" vendor prefix. It would be nice 
to not require this.

FWIW, I am not aware of any conflicts between these XBL features and the 
CSS2.1 or Selectors specifications. (The fact that I'm one of the editors 
of all three makes that statement slightly more relevant! :-) )

Please let me know if there are any objections. The current plan is for 
XBL2 to go to Last Call sometime around mid-September.

Cheers,
