The overhead should be:  An extra class definition in the SWF, one more
class to initialize at run time, there is evidence that API calls take
longer the deeper the inheritance chain is, there is another layer for the
CSS to deal with in the Type Selector calculation, and potentially another
CSS selector.

At some extreme, it will add up to something, but just adding Vgroup and
Hgroup should be hard to detect.
