I could be wrong, but my current thinking is that if you are going to
support both styles and properties, you don’t need any changes to
StyleManager.  State overrides are simply deferred calls to setStyle and
various property setters.  Even more important, as you return from that
state back to some other state, the original style or property value gets
applied.  I don’t think you want to add and remove CSS Selectors.  It will
be too expensive and could affect other parts of the DOM.

So, I think this feature should be independent of the CSS/StyleManager
subsystem.  I think what you really want is a way to store other overrides
to be applied on state changes in various instances.
