I'm -1 on allowing abitrary styles though. The problem is that Forrest 
attempts to provide a unified output formats regardless of the input 
format. If we allow arbitrary styles through then we loose the ability 
to do this because uses will create "headings" by making text larger and 
bold, for example. Forrest has no way of knowing this is supposed to be 
a heading and therefore cannot render it as such.
