I guess, that was a matter of implementing semantic colour highlighting of diffs and code.  Alas, CSS is not Emacs themes and it doesn’t support calculating colours relatively, so you have to either (user-friendly way) make some reasonable assumptions about basic colours or (foolproof way) enforce them.  On the other hand, items of personal taste, such as undecorated links, I believe, got into the published stylesheet simply by mistake.

FWIW, Mozilla implemented it a week ago.

Also, there has always been a standard, yet pretty weird, and hence not widely used, way to choose a stylesheet for a given page among several alternatives: <link rel="stylesheet" title="…" …> + ‘Default-Style’ HTTP header.
