I think we need to be very judicious about linking external resources. Just
one reason why:
That's an extreme case, but elucidates an important principle: external =
APIs such as Google Fonts are one thing, and have a higher degree of
likelihood of being secure; but otherwise, I would tend to lean toward
requiring that resources be bundled *with* the Theme.
If you want to use the style definitions in an external stylesheet, I can't
think of any good reason not to bundle that stylesheet with the Theme.
