See, that sounds awfully functional to me. Why would you want the
theme to be doing that?

A theme is supposed to describe how the site looks, not how the site
works. Sure, for custom jobs, we all do it and put this sort of thing
in the theme, but remember that the directory is supposed to hold
themes to be used for public consumption. Anybody can use them.

So doesn't it make a bit more sense to make this sort of
compression/minification more generic, able to apply to any theme, and
then to put it in a plugin?

Also, look into wp_enqueue_style, which is capable of minification and
combining css files.
