While I don't personally feel strongly about 'appearance: button' specifically, I wish we could stay away from this "just change the source" reasoning. A lot of us have separate people writing the source code, not the CSS authors. We can't just ask them to change hundreds of pages where they might have something like '<a role=button>' because we want it to look like an OS button. There is such a thing as separation of concerns.
