Normally, a recipe would place directly the CSS in a variable like this:
  $HTMLStylesFmt['myrecipe'] = 'a.ext {color:green;}'; # [1]

And not in $HTMLHeaderFmt.

This should place the new CSS before local CSS files loaded from pub/css, and 
a wiki could override these locally.

Even better, your recipe could define your styles with SDVA() :
  SDVA($HTMLStylesFmt, array('myrecipe'=>'a.ext {color:green;}'));

(SDVA = Set Default value in array, unless the value is defined.)

This way, an admin could replace the recipe's CSS via a line like [1] above in
