I think Ber hit the nail on the head for this one. This is the most tedious
and intimidating part.

At one point there was a proposal to document what ids/classes Drupal
uses. This would have helped standardize this area, but the problem
would not have gone away completely.

Part of it is the nature of the beast (every designer uses his own names,
and Drupal has its own).

I think this would make a very good discussion for the themes mailing
