Well, it matters, since you said I didn't consider the fact an element can  
have an infinite number of childs, thus causing a huge performance hit  
with a parent selector.

"Heavily styled" as in, do they rely on styling to present their  
documents? AFAIK the MySQL manual is almost the same with or without  
styling - thus the document styling is irrelevant (optional).

UIs are by default "heavily styled", but they are much smaller in size,  
causing a much smaller performance hit with parent selectors. An UI is no  
longer the same UI without CSS.
