so can we move on and discuss what kind of things can be in drupal;css? I 
already made a list on the bginning of the thread, but include it here again:

* No colours, nor background colours, unless they greatly enhance useability. 
think of watchdog entries. But not tables, grey tables are nice, but should 
be styled by the theme;
* No borders, paddings or margins, *unless* a page will break without them [1]
* No floats, breaks, displays, centres or other things that manipulate the 
flow, *unless* a page will break without them. [2]
* No widths, unless they are *really*  needed to make floated elements appear 
on the same line. 

This is all still fuzzy, so please help to get this in more detail.

And then there is a new issue: module specific style. 
Case: a personal blog.
Needs no book styles, yet these styles are sent to the clients. its not a lot 
of BW, but still not needed, IMO; cold we not move the styles of core 
contribs to misc/modulename.css ?
I know we actually might be best of to have modules live in their directories, 
butbless someone actually writes a good script to do this in CVS and gets ppl 
convinced to do that thats not going to happen. thus its out of scope for 
this discussion IMO.
