Did you ever argue with a sort of «big spender» about paying your ideas AND 
knowing, that he'll have to pay 100times more to get his workers on XSLT-level? 
Some people even don't care 'bout rockets flying through an empty space, 
reaching a «big rock» and sending back some stones, so why can't there be 
people who don't care 'bout what XSLT even means and have absolutely no idea of 
«document editing» beyond type->mark->make bold+underline? (And your 
CSS-argument is quite dangerous, some browser, only a few, very little *g* 
don't support CSS. Can you imagine, that it's not possible to have auto-content 
in something called Internet Explorer *g*? But you could use ActiveX to render 
nearly anything with curves, lines and realtime-3D, which would be even closer 
to reality...)
