We don't currently use WG-specific stylesheets.

* clean display consistent with other specifications

* a lot of boilerplate and space at the top before the contents of the
document that readers need to see
* (previously) hard to help casual readers skip over different sections
(like options, non-normative text, issue boxes, etc.)

We make sparse use of tables regarding "qualifiers" to indicate certain
permitted uses of data. These tables are quite simple:

It seems like there's a lot of vertical white space, especially at the top.
Being able to quickly read the content of a document is important.

We had previously deployed CSS and JavaScript in order to collapse/hide
non-normative sections and issue blocks so that casual readers could more
easily see just normative sections. That code was not maintained and is no
longer necessary, but that kind of functionality (different views for
different users, with the ability to drill down) may be useful in a variety
of contexts.
