 As explained [http://www.w3.org/QA/Tips/goodclassnames here], semantic
 class names should reflect function, not a particular style.  So for
 example "niceblue" isn't such a great class name, as a differently-styled
 admin page might not even use blue there.

 !WordPress advertises itself as a "[http://wordpress.org/ semantic
 personal publishing platform]", and there is at least one
 [http://www.alistapart.com/articles/worldgrowssmall ''A List Apart''
 article supporting semantic class names] (''A List Apart'' is of course
 published by Happy Cog, the designers of the new WP admin theme), so this
 should be a part of the new !WordPress design.
