If the designer is following good code layout for their CSS in the first place 
(i.e. layout in one file, fonts in another file, colours and images in 
another file) then they wouldn't need to put any further effort in.  As I 
frequently say during my day job, a web designer who doesn't lay things out 
in a maintainable fashion is not a designer, but a mere artist.

Disagreed.  Anything which requires constant attention in the long run can't 
possibly be easier than something which doesn't.
