I'm in agreement with you... A border is no more structural than a
background color is... It's decorative and whether it's created with an
actual border or a faux method, I don't think it's any big deal... As long
as it's implemented in the CSS.

I've had to come up with some VERY creative implementations at times...
Especially in sites with dynamic content where you can't be at all sure of
what kind of content will be in each area.
