I made a patch that did this back in January, see comment 13 on 

Another approach is just @import drupal.css at the start of your stylesheet.

But *both* these approaches have a problem.
Currently stylesheets are linked in the following order:
module specific module.css
theme's style.css

Doing as you suggest (or using my patch) means module.css will be linked in 
before drupal.css - something that might cause problems, and certainly means 
modules can't overide core styles.

drupal.css isn't all that crufty and a hell of a lot of it is necessary.

I've pretty much moved camps and am now firmly in Steven's 'we need drupal.css 
but lets clean it up' camp.
