   I was thinking something similar a few days ago. I think I did
exactly this in a website of mine.

   It also means that if we decide to use |role|, and we want roles that
are only used once per page, we're going to need a |roleid| attribute.

   Hmm... I think <h1 class="title"> may actual yield valuable semantic
information, actually. I'd have to think about that...

   With regard to "blue", it doesn't matter, since it's obviously
presentational (unless you can find a language where "blue" is a word
that has a definition useful for a semantic class). As for "title",
further research may be warranted.
