Style attributes

I would like to highlight that styling like this is just awful. Attributes which control positioning and dimensions of the views should NOT be part of a style, even if the attributes are common among all views. Styles should only contain attributes which control how the view is shown to the user: colors, text style and size, etc. This is also why Eclipse refactoring tool does not move all attributes from the view declaration to the style.
