Truly Semantic Classes and Ids

Just a little thought before leaving for work. How funny would it be if we used truly semantic classes and ids in our XHTML? Instead of pretending it’s a “container” or “event-holder” or whatever other text we use to try to fool ourselves into semantic meaning, what if we were truly honest about the role that element was playing? For example:
* im-no-css-jedi
* because-multiple-background-isnt-implemented
* ie-wont-clear-this-damn-thing
* i-can-hang-another-background-off-this
* bottomless-pit-for-my-dom-wickedness
* should-have-been-a-list
* because-ive-never-heard-of-fieldset
* must-have-rounded-corners
I think it’ll catch on. Got more?
