Because maybe my #comment-form is also a .section, and maybe a .large-form.

Easy enough with preprocessors (#comment-form { @extend .section;
@extend .large-form }), but not with normal CSS without duplicating all
the existing styles.

(Otherwise you end up with something like wp-admin's CSS, which is
frankly ridiculous.)
