  • It's error-prone to remove one of the classNames from the list; it is a similar situation when you want to remove a new CSS class in an append only stylesheet. They can collide and override other properties
  • When reading JSX, I am comfortable imagining a 1-to-1 match with the UI. I can easily navigate through the component tree and map with the reality
  • Fail at dynamic styling
    • For example, having a <Link /> component with color="text-mono-100". In the beginning, it would make sense since text-mono-100 represents the desired color. Maybe later, a need to style the link with a different color on hover. You would add another prop called hoverColor="text-mono-200" and call it a day.
