yahoo proposes robots-nocontent class

so yahoo has proposed that we add "robots-nocontent" to html elements that contain no content. fair enough, apart from the fact i don't see people adopting it. for instance, if you have ads on your site, would you voluntarily mark those ads as "robots-nocontent"?

why wouldn't i instantly add a user specified custom stylesheet to all sites that just set the opacity of anything that is robots-nocontent class to 0.5 so that i don't get disrupted by all those flash and javascript widgets/ads that are steaming out of all sorts of blogs?

.robots-nocontent {
opacity: 0.5;

You can reply to me about this on Twitter:
