I see several complaints here.  Let me try and separate them:

Styled spans don't let the author customize styles, like bold, italic and
underline.  One commenter writes:

> if you have a specific style for bold text on your page there no way you can make a style
> sheet work with output that just sayes <span style="font-wight:bold"> rather
> then <b> or <strong> and it takes up more space.

This should be addressed by <http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13490>
Implement execCommand("styleWithCSS", ...).

WebKit inserts unnecessary spans:

> Right now, webkit inserts so many wrong spans. And if you try to copy paste text

This is not yet filed.

If a custom class on markup created by editing is necessary, it should be
hidden and not appear in output from methods like innerHTML:

This is what the title of this bug report describes, so lets let this bug
report cover this issue.

There are problems with formatting in the Wordpress editor:

This sounds like <http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14350> WordPress:
Editor strips paragraph breaks,
which is an evangelism issue (and frustratingly still unfixed).  Could those of
you having problems with WordPress verify this?

So that leaves just one issue unfiled: that WebKit inserts unnecessary spans
during some editing operations.  Danny Bloemendaal mentioned this one.  Danny,
could you please file a new bug and provide steps to reproduce?

Let me know if I've left something out here.
