### Should we have any mandatory stuctual elements in skins?

My initial thought was - mark up all pure content elements with some naming convention. For example 'ab_q_title' would be class name for question title, or 'ab_query_id' id of search query input element. Postfix '_id' would make id's distinct from classes.

The question is - should we also have some mandatory structural blocks? I.e. container types that would group elements like question title, question toolbar (with delete, edit, etc. links), etc.

Originally I though that we shouldn't because structure items like that enforce layout which will make building alternative layouts harder.

What do you think?
