style attribute, only on font?


It seems that the style attribute is only defined for the font  
element. I have noticed the BIG issue and understands that it is not  
yet solved.

     The style attribute, if specified, must contain
     only a list of zero or more semicolon-separated
     (;) CSS declarations. [CSS21]

     Big Issue: We probably need to move this attribute
     to more elements, maybe even all of them, though
     if we do that we really should find a way to strongly
     discourage its use (and the use of its DOM attribute)
     for non-WYSIWYG authors.

Do you have an idea when it will be edited? timeframe in months is fine.

PS: I have discovered it because I was wondering about parsing and  
html 5 unquoted attributes values and where this following case was  
treated in parsing section.
<font style=14pt / 12pt; >boo</font>
