I just wanted to pass along my thanks to everyone in this thread. I got a lot more help then I could ask for and learned more in this thread than from all the css tutorials I've been reading the last few weeks. I need to still tweak things for content on other pages but other than that I'm quite content and it looks very nice (IMO) now.
So thank you for the input, especially Death

And no, it's NOT the CSS equivalent of slapping classes on everything in the markup, it's the equivalent of not wasting CSS power just because of one PMF, STBG, IE6.
We had many times before the same argument And I've said it before: I refuse to do my web dev stopping at what IE6 can do. Instead, I start with what modern UAs can do and then I gracefully degrade for granpa' IE6
Looking at this another way: what type of regexp would we have today if the "philosophy of minimalism" regarding CSS selectors would apply the same way there? It's pretty much the same thing. A regexp expression, much like a CSS selector, needs to be effective and efficient.
Finally, I don't believe using selectors like > or + means more weight and clutter to my CSS. Per contra
