It seems to me that one could read "a user" instead of "the author" 
here. I don't believe simple application of a group of styles to pages 
via a URI substring match will be flexible enough to support the needs 
of the end user. This is illustrated by the immediate branching of this 
thread into proposals for a powerful syntax enabling grouping of pages, 
sites, etc, in multiple different ways, which can be combined by the 
user to suit their specific needs.
