I think he's suggesting some kind of css:style attribute that can be 
used on any arbitrary element, somewhat like the XHTML style attribute.

<foo css:style="color: green;">bar</foo>

xml:style may be a little more suitable for that, though I doubt it 
would ever be accepted either since, like the (X)HTML style attribute, 
it fails to separate semantics from the presentation.
