My fear here is that we're going down the route where non-CSS-aware UAs will be 
getting an increasingly raw deal. Lynx will put quotes around <q>. Lynx will not 
be putting in chapter numbers generated by CSS counters and certainly not 
auto-generating tables of contents.

I suppose I would argue that all user agents, visual, text, speech and so forth 
alike, should all obey CSS. But we'd still be losing content in those that 
presently don't.
