The point is, you don't know whether it's even worth looking in the 
menu. Perry has recently discovered this feature so I bet he'll look in 
the menu a few times over the coming days as he browses the web, so see 
if pages have provided an alternative stylesheet.  I also bet he'll stop 
bothering with it soon enough.

What's missing is some UI to notify the user that there is an 
alternative stylesheet available. That's what makes the thing fairly 
useless in practice, IMO.

I don't think any of this is something that this WG should tackle, 
though; it's a UA thing.

Cheers,
