Decentralization of CSS may sometimes pose an issue, but using
conditional comments for IE isn't actually a hack. It's using a
proprietary Microsoft extension; every other browser simply treats
conditional comments as regular comments. The additional benefit of
conditional comments is that you can use other proprietary Microsoft
CSS extensions (e.g., "zoom" and various JScript expressions) within
them without causing your code to invalidate.
I'd actually argue that if your conditional IE 6-7 CSS files are so
big as to be unmaintainable, it's probably time to revisit how you're
doing your CSS to begin with.
