What do you mean "per type"? In DynaText, we actually use something
like the proposal:

   SEMANTICS  "popup" "ebt-fulltext-stylesheet" "Pop-Up Graphics" "grphpop.v"
   SEMANTICS  "serif" "ebt-fulltext-stylesheet" "Serif Font" "serif.v"

Yes. Multiple stylesheet could be easier than styles qualified by
context in some cases. It really amounts to the same thing though
the binding mechnism is different....
