Yes, but  CSS applies to XUL like CSS applies to SVG... So CSS impacts all of 
our markups with its loose-cannon approach of not requiring a namespace of 
its own when being applied inside other peoples' namespaces.

I have just seen an example of this having previously happened during a talk 
at the SVG London Users Group, where I caught an odd-looking attribute, whose 
name came about when it had to be re-assigned due to a name collision with 
CSS. It was in one of XUL or XBL.
