Hi Chris,

To establish one point in the next mail I'm going to send, that's not
quite the question I asked. I asked if you were amenable to the
discussion, which is not precisely the same as what Emmanuel initially
sent. To condense where that discussion seems to have lead:

- be able to associate symbols with specific graphical regions/entities
of the displayed document. By regions and entities, we mean things like
"the object that represents the resource", "the object that represents
the property name", "the object that represents the property value". By
"associate" we mean custom hooks to identify those regions for later CSS

- 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". This is not a core
consideration but may influence the overall design.

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