unless the device has poor or no support for MQs (a common occurrence), 
in which case you are back to if..then..else, initially, and WURFL 

I googled for  [mobile "media queries "] and the first link was your own:

David Storey - Media Queries and Handheld stylesheets

Second link was from the same site.

This seems to suggest that that MQs do not have much following among 
mobile developers (and I can tell you that in 10 years of honored 
WMLProgramming history, I cannot recall a single question about MQs. 
Maybe there were one or two, but MQs certainly never showed up on the 
radar as a solution for the overwhelming majority of mobile developers).
