2. No style properties in attributes (STYLE="...")

The argument for (2) is that it leads to bad design. It may also be a
little bit less efficient for future sophisticated browsers. But some
people want this facility, so I guess we just have to accept this in

It seems to me that IETF WGs work on a consensus basis. I don't believe
there is a consensus on a STYLE attribute. Some people oppose it quite
strongly. Therefore, it should be removed. "Some people want this" doesn't
cut it!
