yes, it can very easily be added, but we don't plan to do so for
CSS1. We have to keep the specification simple while handing out some
new toys. It's easy to attack this strategy: one can complain about
the specification being to complex, or that one cannot do this or
that. Some people now appear to take both these stands...
