The downside of an attribute is getting multiple views of the same 
document, one editable, one not (or further, with different parts 
editable). And I doubt that it would be possible to argue for putting it 
in the XML namespace.

I think attaching it using selectors or XPath is great -- they don't 
have to be limited to style. Making it a CSS property is another 
question and I agree it shouldn't be there.
