I like the CSS mechanism because it appears at the very beginning.

An optimistic answer to the first question is yes, although it may 
be more practical to provide a bit of flexibility (e.g.,   @
as well as #).  The structure and the semantics should be standardized.  
At present, everything is a hopeless mess.

Although I suggested this approach, I still feel uneasy about in-band 
encoding declarations.  I'm trying to generalize them only because 
I believe ad-hoc mechanisms are worse.
