Default Template css file structure modification suggestion

Ive been doing some editing of sites, Ive been trying to come as close as possibible to finding a way to keep custom changes easily even after upgrading. Ive done something akin to the following :

I would like to suggest modifying kinabalu to incorporate a css over-rides file to this end.

Rename templates_css.css to templates_css_kinabalu.css

Create a new templates_css.css containing :

@import url("templates_css_kinabalu.css");
@import url("overrides.css");
Create a blank overrides.css in the template css directory along with the other css files that exist there so end users can copy and place any css code they wish to modify in this file.

Then set make sure the overrides.css file is not over-written during script installs or upgrades.

I think such changes would make it much easier to handle and keep track of css modifications done and protect changes from being lost. Ive seen rockettheme and Gavickpro (aka joomlart template code engine) utilising such methods.

Just an idea.
