Re: XBL is (mostly) W3C redundant, and CSS is wrong W3C layer for semantic behavior *markup*

BTW, let me add that "fine control over the gradations" is a reason we need
thin, orthogonal layers, such as XSLT instead of XBL.  It is simply good OO
design principle.

CSS is an example of a thin, orthogonal layer than is a gradation between
markup and presentation.  XSLT can be used as gradation between custom
semantic markup and standard semanitc markup.  XBL is a thick layer for
accomplishing a specific task of building a small class of applications.
Refer to me previous posts in this thread for justifications.
