While I'm getting started with DXL, I wanted to see if I could start a discussion about where DXL ends and CSS begins. I understand that DXL can do a lot more than just update design elements, but shouldn't style be the purview of CSS? Jeff Eisen recently blogged about changing UI elements in Hannover with CSS. Mary Beth Raven picked this up and gave a little more information about how themes might be implemented in Hannover.

So what do you think? Is DXL really viable long-term for UI updating, or should we hold out for CSS? I'll still continue with my DXL UI Skinner, since it will apply to R7 and ND6/6.5, but I would be interested to see if anyone has insight or even an opinion on where this is headed.
