There are definitely already extensions that completely remodel the UI experience of sites like Facebook. They've only been targeted at making things more usable and adding features that people want, rarely undoing new Facebook redesigns.

The people who would install a Chrome extension to improve the design of facebook aren't going to be the kind of people who blindly say "ugh, Facebook looks differen, wtf!", and those kinds of people are especially not going to be the kind of people who would write up lots of complicated CSS and JS (both, not just CSS, would be necessary to roll back Facebook's upgrades) to redesign facebook. But this raises a good point: when Facebook rolls out a redesign, do they change the backend enough that an extension that overrode the CSS and JS with the previous design's CSS and JS would break?
