-1. Rounded corners, implemented as divs, breaks everything that is holy 
about CSS: semantic markup. If, to implement a feature, we have to do 
[div][div][div], then that's just the same as using <br> (unclosed XHTML 
deliberately, since this is the sort of hack years ago that CSS was 
supposed to save us from) to add whitespace, as opposed to CSS's margin, 
padding, or what have you.

Browser hacks, bad. Abusing CSS, bad.
