I think its too different. Example:
I will change one *.css Order; I must searche into all directory for *.css Files.
I have a Side/article with template, 3 actions, 2 plugin etc.
Which code determines the endresult? Whats the ranking?

BastoR, the only stylesheet you will need to change and maintain is the one under templates/. The (optional) css for components such as actions, handlers etc. are not supposed to override the main styling of the wiki, but to provide basic support for the layout of these components when this is strictly necessary.
