I think 'theoretically separate layer':
  usual users (not specialists) don't turn off css,
  robots always cash css-files.

  Turning off is necessary very seldom: content of these sites are
always not interesting, so it's never need to turn at second page of site.

  It would be laughable, if we disfigure standards, because
we forget to write concrete program (for special device).

You agree, that faster-than-human-perception is not important ?

Impossibility itself to display pictures is big strong defect.
