That only works if the only styles are author, or if users aren't supposed to 
have ultimate control. AFAICT, inline styles are hopelessly immune to user 
overrides, thus shouldn't be in the spec at all. Users shouldn't have to 
disable styles entirely in order to make one specific element usable.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
