Its an interesting project to clean the PM output. Code is scattered in a lot of places and without a rigorous project to eliminate it you'll have to put up with the current approach: As and when pmdev touches a node for some reason we usually do an HTML cleanup at the same time.
As for converting everything over to use CSS, I think thats a policy change that hasn't occured yet. OTOH, im sure there are ways to make the page much easier to manage via CSS without compromising the "old look". pmdev lacks a guidline document on that, and as such we just do what seems most sensible. We also dont have a list of used class names, or the like. Theres a couple of projects that could be interesting for someone. Anyone interested in the CSS guidelines should speak with petruchio though.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
