I guess it's a question of preference, but in my mind if the CMS can generate this:
Then it can just as well generate this:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/test-site/includes/template/stylesheet.css" />
If it can't, then it's a design choice by the authors rather than an obligation to use a base element. Using the base element is, in my opinion, a band-aid in lieu of doing it right.
But I fear we are digressing from the original poster's question ;)
