Re: [eclipse-incubator-e4-dev] CSS namespaces

Agree, I think that's along the lines of how it would work.  Namespaces aside, for each extended widget, someone (presumably the widget component provider) needs to :
  • publish the set of properties each widget supports so that a developer knows what to write in the curly CSS brackets (and we may want for a validator),
  • describe to the platform the class of the widget which will match the name appearing in the CSS file,
  • describe to the platform the methods to invoke matching those property values.
