The Web site http://userstyles.org/ along with the Stylish extension  
in Firefox seems to solve this problem. Wouldn't a better solution be  
for browsers support pinpointing specific user style?

Of, if this is for inclusion into the CSS specific, would the syntax  
used in Stylish be more appropriate:
@-moz-document domain(schuelervz.net) {}
