there are ways. See this page:

I have two solutions both very similar to this.

Sure. But they have to do something already. They have to install HTCs 
on their server and link to them somehow using CSS. Ideally that will be 
a single-line inclusion of a style sheet. My point is, in extreme cases 
where performance needs to tweaked, we suggest the following change:

* {
  behavior: expression(...);
}

==>

tr.example {
  behavior: expression(...);
}

it's a performance tweak that *could* be made. It is not a requirement.
