That's exactly what sites did to work around NS4 not reapplying CSS in some 
cases.  The result is that some UAs don't actually reload when you do 
location.reload() from a resize event handler.  The relevant Gecko code comment, 
for example, is:

      // location.reload() was called on a window that is handling a
      // resize event. Sites do this since Netscape 4.x needed it, but
      // we don't, and it's a horrible experience for nothing. In stead
      // of reloading the page, just clear style data and reflow the
      // page since some sites may use this trick to work around gecko
      // reflow bugs, and this should have the same effect.

In other words, UAs already have to do with this situation....
