Agreed with that.  Being able to specify styles as declaration blocks in 
CSS as a class and reference/apply them in JS via className is good (but 
maybe class name is not the right mechanism to expose declaration blocks 
to JS enviroment). There is clear separation of  function. But CSS 
duplicating functionality inherent in the DOM event model willy nilly is 
bad and should be avoided IMHO.  Maybe CSS should just duplicate all the 
DOM events exactly??
