There is a CSS 3 Hyperlink Presentation Module[1], created early 2004,
which describes various properties that can replace the @target
attribute and/or similar JavaScript implementations. While the draft
provides a lot more flexibility to authors, to my knowledge it has not
been implemented yet by any browser.

While the following question isn't really related to this thread
either, are there any plans to maintain the draft or should it be seen
as obsolete? It seems to be on the edge of presentation and behavior,
which might not be desirable.
