you wouldn't change then "everywhere in a document" you would just
change them in one place, your xslt stylesheet as opposed to your
css stylesheet.

<grin/> ... True, up to a point. But styling/presentation may be decided on by a person whose primary skills / interest is in presentation and who may well be ignorant of XSLT.... There are actually such non-XSLT literate persons! :)

Letting them tinker with a CSS style sheet still seems to me to be potentially beneficial. Keeping them away from XSLT stylesheets also seems prudent.

I guess the balance in any one setting depends on workflows and distibution of skills among individuals.
