I disagree strongly that this is clear. I can imagine a single person
(me!) wanting it both ways at different times.

It doesn't make sense to me to have "ignored" as a style attribute,
regardless of any possibilities via accident of implementation. It's
not a formatting thing, which is what people think of as the use for
styles. It makes lots of sense to have "ignored" as an attibute of a
structural element (e.g., ignore "this table" or "this cell in this
table" or "this selection I just swept out with my mouse").
