Agreed. I'm just arguing that we could have one syntax and one set
of style processors (DSSSL-fixed and DSSSL-programmable) instead of two
syntaxes and two sets of style processors CSS and DSSSL-complete.

Which isn't to argue that CSS should be discarded. It is probably more 
simply hand-editable than DSSSL. I just don't think that most SGML tools
need to implement it. They could just implement DSSSL-fixed.
