One of the things that came from the theme system discussion at  
DrupalCon was that
we need to implement namespacing in drupal.

So that all css classes / id's created by drupal get prefixed by the  
name of the module they
are generated by. Now we almost do something like this already, but I  
also think
that anything that is in drupal.css should be prefixed by drupal-* ,  
and all the modules should be

This means that if you see a class in your markup (that hasn't been  
generated by the theme), you can
immediately see which file the css is defined in, and which file you  
need to override.
