Certainly a valid question, and one that was answered "yes", at least so far.
We already as shipping the .css files but only converting some of them.

This change means we ship the bss to go with them.

The gradle code block can easily tolerate the addition of exclusions if needed.

The other part of the question was if we even should ship the .css files a all and css2bin. To shorten a long conversation, continuing to do so allows widget developers access to them, access we have no other standard way of providing.
