I have a problem with controls which depend on JavaScript because 
sometimes (by law) you have to deal with the fact that JavaScript 
cannot be used or at least degrade gracefully. Also the issue suggests 
to use an external CSS file for links? So if I want to render a link 
with Click it will load an external stylesheet? Thats quite heavy for 
something as simple as a link.

I've noticed quite a number of JIRA's related to adding styles to 
control which I really hope we stay away from.

A more practical approach is to create site wide themes but to me this 
is outside Click's scope. See JQuery theme roller for an example:

We already have too many link and button controls, I'd rather we 
consolidate/remove some of them instead of adding more.
