Oh, gross. The parsing rules, and the HTML DTD, alter depending on what
stylesheet happens to be applied to a document at a given time, and the
structure and content are deeply and mysteriously intertwingled.

If elements are  outside the flow - fine, flow is a formatting concept.
The stylesheet should not affect the way the document tree is constructed
in the way you seem to be suggesting.
