A little something for your consideration...

Should themes authors try to style images with the applied class 

I've always tended to assume that "alignnone" could be interpreted (in 
may situations) as meaning "Hands off - let the browser do its own 
thing". However, it's recently been pointed out to me that this can lead 
to display variations cross-browser and/or at different screen 
resolutions. The kind of variations that might confuse a non-technical 
site owner, for example.

Apparently some theme authors clear the alignnone images so that they 
are on their own line - thus hopefully minimising this kind of default 
browser variation.

Could (or even "should") the Theme Guidelines offer some guidance here? 
I assume that this would come under the general heading of offering a 
standardised experience across different themes.
