We have some infrastructure for that already, used by MathML.  See

We would need a way to map namespaces to catalog sheet URIs, of course; the
XPCOM category approach you suggest would be fine for that.

If that's not desired, then it sounds like xul.css (which is already part of
ua.css) should just import that sheet.  Much simpler than doing the full-blown
catalog sheet thing.

Unless you want to make sure that we in fact do not put xul.css in the agent
sheet level for HTML pages... which would also be a worthwhile goal.
