Wow. I have been working on something rather similar to this. For the last 
couple of months, as I have had the time, I've been working on a theme that 
has as one of it's features all of it's theme related stuff (but not 
including theme_ functions from the modules themselves) in separate .css 
and .tpl.php files per module or node type. I have so far only been working 
on core modules, but I did have in mind to include some of the more popular 
contrib modules later on.

The reasoning behind it for me is that I wanted to create a them that I could 
use on multiple projects where I could easily modify the areas that needed 
modification and not have the other code be in the way. If I'm not using the 
forum module, then I don't have the forum markup to deal with. If I am using 
the forum module, then all the relevant markup is in one place and easy to 
find and modify.
