Strongly disagreed !
Now we don't assign or not assign attributes depending media types.

DD> the cascade (including specificity rules)

Agreed.

Re-rendering during downloading. I'm sure,
that very small quantity of attributes will be migrated to CSS
(because author will specify such attributes in CSS,
which attributes he use in suppressing majority of documents),
so re-rendering will be in very small quantity of places.

DD> It is significantly more complicated then simply parsing HTML.

This depend of nature of browser engine - to what is it more similar:
to end-to-end linear transformation of html-text into screen image;
or to trigger's transformation, working for attributes and properties
(the last are used in one or another degree for all browers, supporting JS).
