Absolutely - it would be particularly "friendly" if this were not trumpeted 
as in "look how cool I am to change my site's appearance with the season" 
but was analogous to the note at the back of printed books which explain 
the fonts used (although not normally the reasons for the choices).

People with(out) retinae may(n't) want to know these things or not have 
them forced upon us.

I think this is the crux of the entire discussion about the "classes/CSS" 
issue.
