Digging further, the problem with trying to produce the level of 
granularity that Doug is looking is knowing where to stop. Every element 
and every attribute and property is going to make for a large list 
already, and combinations thereof (which may be meaningful, eg stroked 
text, or even just stroked text on bitmap fonts) even more. The current 
limit set at modules plus specific features that we know may  cause 
trouble in some situations (eg transformed or composited video on mobile 
devices) is imho the most reasonable, but maybe other people here will 
have better suggestions.
