Nope, it's going to be static. You can decide which CSS to fetch at run 
time, via require(). I think this has something to do with JS if I'm not 
mistaken. So you can check the agent and fetch a proper for this agent 
CSS file. I suppose this doesn't contradict with the fact that we don't 
want to use JS for usability. This JS should work behind the scenes and 
if it's disable or not available the default CSS should be brought in. 
I'll leave again to the experts to comment on whether it's going to work.
