I'm in favor of a generalized approach.

What about something that just turns off specificity at the stylesheet level, and for those stylesheets everything is order based? This would allow authors to easily control when they wanted specificity to work as an override and when they wanted to ignored it and treat it purely as a query.

This would also help with resets and third-party stylesheets, and make it much easier for them to never clash with first-party styles.
