I'm not sure I agree. I do not speak English natively, so I may be wrong 
about this. I see "style" simply as colors and fonts etc. - what about 
animations? I'd much prefer "presentation", which in my mind covers more 

  <xml:presentation type="text/css">
      body { background-color: #ABC; }

  <xml:presentation type="...">
    ... random animation language ...

This is of course not necessary for XML technologies such as SMIL, 
simply because they can be directly embedded into the document using 
namespaces, but I can imagine that somewhere down the road there'll be a 
need for a different approach to animations.
