I disagree. It's useful to have everything on a single file (if there
are no images), for instance you can pipe the result to stdout for
scripts and things like that. What benefit do you get by splitting the
html and the css? I split them all the time on my web projects, but
it's rare to have to further edit / maintain these files, and you're
going to break existing scripts / pipelines if you change the default
behaviour. I think you need a very good reason to do that.
