David,

>> +
DD> What?

I group your identical questions/objections and
enumerate them through '+'.
My answer after this enumeration is for all these
identical questions/objections.

>> 2) CAS stricturize thinking.
DD> I have no idea what this is supposed to mean.

Man with structurized thinking devide items into groups,
really adequate for corrent, concrete task.
Written language can promote or prevent this type of thinking.

CAS will allow to devide (attributes-properties) into groups
(unique items, common items), really adequate for
CORRENT, CONCRETE task (site).

Author

I'm accepting your argument.
Let attributes in css will be media-specific.
I'm listen your objections for this variant.

DD> It isn't difficult, it lets authors think about one thing at a time

Absolutely agreed !!

No (and presentation also).

DD> "I am writing CSS, therefore I am describing how the
DD> semantics should be represented to the user".

Yes, but with redundant 'style='.

DD> CSS expert working on the look while HTML experts work on the content

My signature at the end of each letter is content or look ??!!

Multiple repeated attributes ON CONCRETE SITE are 'look' ONLY,
independently of how W3's officials specify them.

Please, multiply to quantity of population, than to quantity of
pages on sites - and you will get real number of duplications,
which are quite not little.
