Ah but you're thinking about just one possibility.  If CSS were first 
class and easily manipulatable, then it would be possible to make a CSS 
builder directly in Seaside.  Then your company doesn't have to buy 
expensive software to allow designers to style your pages.

Having more options to do something doesn't give anyone more work unless 
they choose to have more work.
