this will be a great improvement since it will be a step forward in get CSS
in Flex compete with CSS in other technologies (aka HTML5).

layout, itemrenders and all visualconfigurations should be able to be
delegated to a CSS. With Flex 4 advanced CSS selectors we had a great
evolution, now I think we should work to continue that evolution.

Great idea so far :)
