Isn't there a cheap way to distinguish changes to the DOM (setAttribute) 
from indirect changes to how CSSMutableStyleDeclaration is formatted to 
text?   It sounds as if you already have a setter function that knows 
how to update the CSSMutableStyleDeclaration from a string, so I would 
have thought that this is easy to deal with, right?
