Oy boy!
I expected, that main reasons to segregate
(not to develop in future) were
 to reduce manual job,
 to follow structurized thinking,
 to ecomonize traffic at least,
but to domesticate (tame) users - i can't expect this !!

BK> I don't necessarily agree that CSS should include all the attributes

Actually, nature of presentational parameters (now properties) and
repeated attributes are different. And if to think consecutively,
it's necessary to segregate them into different place of consciousness
and into different capacity at keeping.

But current practice is so, that it's _possible_ (not consecutive)
to store them in one capacity. In exchange for one capacity,
we get rid of necessity to separate manually into capacities.

'formally' and 'case-by-case' (individually) are opposite.

We can group all repeated attributes formally,
but we must individually move into other group.

Inter-discipline science against-the-will must be entered
