I don't think we should go into this level of detail unless someone can  
propose a good way of doing it. I'm also not sure it makes sense in all  
cases to not let media queries have effect. If I zoom in a 1000px wide  
viewport to make the effective width 500px it might very well give a  
better user experience if the 500px width style sheet is applied instead.  
(Opera 9.5 does this, for instance.)
