I understand, but I raise two questions:

1) Shouldn't this be for browsers vendors to implement on their own?  
For example, Opera apparently has a solution (see http://userstyles.org/styles/installing 

2) Wouldn't the Mozilla Firefox syntax be better suited, if this was  
to be included in the CSS specification, than the one you suggested?
