This just seems to be an extension of the id-itus and class-itus that 
already afflicts Drupal. Most modules output their content in a container 
(usually a div, occasionally a table), all that's required is to have that 
container tagged with and id or class representative of the module.

Then use the CSS cascade properly to style any child elements.

Slapping a prefix on everything is just bloat - why is it that bloat in PHP 
files is bad but bloat in XHTML and CSS is acceptable?

It's really not that much harder to find a parent div/table and check out 
it's class/id.
