  You have convinced me, CAS (third layer: with attributes,
but without properties) would more suitable, than CSAS.
  'optional' theoretically or practically ? I know people,
who browse without downloading pictures (e.g. I),
but i know nobody, who without css.
  As was mentioned, one css-file per hundreds other files of site
is less one persent of traffic, so this is not actual for robots.

  Size of program is not important in epoch of DVD, BluRay, etc.
  It's not important, how much time of rendering is less constants
of human perception (1 sec): 0.05 sec or 0.5 sec
(comparing browsers in identical conditions, i.e. for textual framework).
  And without pictures, it's not useful - observe today's inet.

Yes, any technology allows author to harm himself.
