Why?  I think that would be wrong.

The inheritance has semantic impacts, so that's the part that
it important.  The directory in which it's kept is largely irrelevant in
that it does not affect the behavior.

If someone wants to move it to progmodes, I won't veto it, but to the
extent that CSS currently isn't "Turing complete" (AFAIK), there are
arguments both for and against, so it's probably just not worth the
trouble (since moving files has consequences w.r.t revision history,
merging, etc...).

IOW, better just leave it alone and concentrate on things which matter more.
