Re: XBL in CSS

It doesn't quite allay the concern -- it might be "language
version independent" as seen today --- but it'll effectively
dictate how future versions of CSS evolve -- in the name of
"backward compatibility".

I would express an equivalent concern over the way CSS selectors
are presently tied into XBL -- it's also not clear in that
instance which version of CSS is being  "bound" to.
