Yes, you are right. I thought about this and I remembered that when we
came up with 
<forrest:css url="profile.css" media="screen" title="Pelt"/>

I original wanted to allow:
<forrest:css media="screen">
/* Extra css */
#header {
    background: #ffffff;
    border-bottom: thick solid #002b3d;

I will do that if no one speaks up.

BTW I propose to change @title to @theme, that reflects the function of
the attribute better.
<forrest:css url="profile.css" media="screen" theme="Pelt"/>

To the color profiling, I think that should be better done by a
<forrest:contract name="branding-theme-profiler">
  <forrest:properties contract="branding-theme-profiler">
    <forrest:property name="branding-theme-profiler">
<!--Copied from skinconf.xml-->
     <color name="tab-selected" value="#4a6d8c" link="#0F3660"
vlink="#0F3660" hlink="#000066"/>
     <color name="tab-unselected" value="#b5c7e7" link="#0F3660"
vlink="#0F3660" hlink="#000066"/>
     <color name="subtab-selected" value="#4a6d8c" link="#0F3660"
vlink="#0F3660" hlink="#000066"/>
     <color name="subtab-unselected" value="#4a6d8c" link="#0F3660"
vlink="#0F3660" hlink="#000066"/>

where we really have to change the naming to either contract or hook
names to easier understand which parts of the view this colors will

In leather-dev or pelt old fashion skins the profile.css is generated
from profiling.css.xslt. This is and the forrest.css.xslt should be the
base for this contract. 
format="html" name="branding-theme-profiler" inputFormat="xsl" 
body="false" head="true"/>

If somebody want to provide a patch that would be awesome. That would as
well be good as extension of the how-to about writing contracts. ;-)

As soon I finished the rewriting I can do it if nobody beats me to it.
