Sounds like a good idea.

There is no need for a default stylesheet identical for all browsers,
but default stylesheets should have as few declarations as possible to
get the desired effect. This implies as many default declarations in
HTML as possible, so that authors can count on inheritance in
situations where users have not created custom sheets.

The best stylesheet will be the one that does it with the fewest
