Good idea Ben.

I've been using php to write css so I can use variable names for my colour 
scheme. That facility may not be available to all though.

What I would do, rather than creating styles, is to use a comment at the 
top of the css file(s). Something like

Colour codes
Masthead background: #2B5353
Main border: #666666
Body type: #0000de

Because I agree, I've done more than my share of screenshotting, etc.
