Order *does* matter. Take two identical rules in separate sheets and the 
later one takes priority. That's how child themes work, after all. :-)

I take your point about specificity but I've got themes that use html in 
some rules. and given that I tend to be pretty specific when writing CSS 
anyway, some of them could be damn hard to over-write using pure 
specificity. I'd argue that there still have to be mechanisms available 
for plugin authors, developers, users etc to load later sheets.
