I think that for this specific point we should discuss requirements.
What I'd like to have:

- be able to associate CSS instructions with specific graphical
regions/entities of the displayed document. By regions and entities, I
mean things like "the object that represents the resource", "the object
that represents the property name", "the object that represents the
property value".

- be able to apply styling instructions based on conditions at the
source RDF model level, i.e. be able to say things like "color in red
all ex:age properties that have a value > to 47".

- drop any layout consideration, as layout portability is not achievable
(closely coupled with the application's underlying representation paradigm)

I also would like to have a well-defined intermediate tree format. Ryan,
I haven't had time to look at the code you wrote. Did you already make a
choice w.r.t that issue?
