Currently @-keyword statements are ignored and StyleManager isn't going to help you either. 

I'm not sure what @import buys you over adding the application wide stylesheet to the stylesheets property of Scene or Parent. I'm not saying it isn't something we shouldn't have. In fact, I could use it myself. But right now, ObservableList<String> getStylesheets() is all we have to work with.
