>From my point of view, there is only one open question for the
sldRenderer, which I posted to the list earlier today. Once the
"apply-style magic" is implemented, I would consider the sldRenderer
sandbox ready for review and putting it into trunk after that. Since
there are only two places in existing code that are affected by the
sldRenderer, I dont't think that there would be too much churn to do.

This is the one thing. But the other thing is that the
OpenLayers.Style class is a good representation for any kind of style
information retreived from xml or elsewhere. And IMO it would be a
shame if such neat things would have to be developed twice.
