For external resource links created with the <link> element, the URL is
resolved when the resource is fetched, which can be delayed if the
resource doesn't apply yet (e.g. because a media query doesn't yet match).
This could lead to situations where different user agents had compliant
behavior, unfortunately, but this is one case where I can't see how to
avoid it without requiring suboptimal behavior.
