Because

  * {background-image: none !important}

does not override

  .gobbledegook142375-UX {background: url(pointlesstransparentbackground.png)....

I have to identify .gobbledegook142375-UX as needing to be added to the user
stylesheet.

FWIW, my main Gecko profile's chrome dir contains 670kb in user styles.
Without Domi, the considerable effort that went into creating them would
probably have been multiplied several times if possible at all. Compaction
proliferation has compounded the problem, because I must save to disk, append
newlines to each } that doesn't already have one, and then because 7 year old
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=208641 hasn't been fixed, work
with that result outside of the browser and its extensions.
