Could you please explain to me how suggesting to someone to keep
designs accessible to all browsers doesn't place "emphasis [...] on
the practical use of CSS." As for browser detection being an off-topic
item I think it is relevent in this instance. It is my opinion that
the mechanics of browser-detection(i.e. scripting) would be off-topic,
but not a general discussion on how it relates to CSS. If anything it
would help advocate the use of CSS.
And after reading your personal idea I believe you and I agree on the
role of CSS. However, I believe that as a designer one should strive
to make designs seamless from one browser to another. Ever browser
user should have the same experience when viewing a design.
