    No, you should be able to use multiple @import statements and have 
them all contribute their rules to the cascade.  In terms of bringing 
in styles from external stylesheets, @import is just the CSS 
equivalent of what link lets you do in HTML.  Browser implementations 
may be another story-- I've never done a widespread testing of 
multiple @imports-- but you should be able to list as many as you 
want at the beginning of a stylesheet.
