It's amazing but I have the exact opposite opinion : I still think
that non-global variables have zilch interest. Furthermore, it will
complexify so much the Object Model that it will become almost
unusable by web authors for dynamic effects. As I said, it will also
be useless for corporation-wide design charters.

And in terms of 'globality', everything remains restricted only
to stylesheets.
