Transparent backgrounds are but the tip of the iceberg -- imagine what
would happen if a user stylesheet and an author stylesheet clashed about
what elements should be what table display types, for instance.

This is a long standing recognised problem known as property codependency.

The working group has not yet seen or thought of a proposal to solve this
problem. Suggestions are welcome, but have most likely already been
considered and rejected. :-)
