Both load-styles.php and load-scripts.php can only process default
scripts and stylesheets as they don't load the rest of WordPress. The
URLs are taken from script-loader.php where they are hard-coded.
Otherwise we would need to load WordPress at least three times for every
page: once for the html, once for js and once for css...
There are other ways to do concatenating of all scripts and styles
including the queue from plugins but it involves saving the ready files
to the server similar to how WP Super Cache works, so not a good idea
for core as it needs proper server config, etc.
I actually have some code to do this that's been sitting around for a
while due to lack of time, if somebody wants to team up we could make it
into a plugin :)
