Something like that. It would also give a pointer to implementers and
the ODF TC that some users do want this, if some computer science
genius can come up with a way that isn't an implementation-dependent
technical horror ... it's amazing how well Gecko, Opera and Safari
match up the fine details of their presentation of HTML+CSS from three
vastly different codebases, for a slightly comparable example.
