Exactly.

Unfortunately, there is an undercurrent of opinion on this list (or  
perhaps even a theme of the CSSWG) that authors must be protected  
from themselves, and that the Web must be protected from authors. It  
rears its head time and time again. There is a surprising lack of the  
idea of "empowering authors", or "letting authors be responsible for  
the consequences of their work", or of giving designers the creative  
freedom to do a good or bad job based on their own skill and  
craftsmanship.
