         Definitely a good point.

         I've always liked the fallback mechanism the Open eBook 
publication format uses 
(http://www.openebook.org/oebps/oebps1.2/index.htm). The idea is that you 
can specify display elements with alternate elements, depending on the 
device viewing said element.

         That'd be quite handy on the Web, methinks. I'm surprised it 
hasn't been picked up, especially in regards to the display of alternate 
stylesheets. Sadly, this is still in the purview of scripting tricks.
