No. Implicitly, style elements without a media-attribute should be
interpreted as having media="all". The media types used with the import
directives then further limit what is actually imported. The first one
means, of course, @import url(..) all; .

Queries like should probably be directed to the relevant CSS authoring
newsgroup instead of www-style.
