I don't force the font colour in my browser, but I do force the font face, as I have trouble reading sans serif type. (Although I could see why someone might want to force the colours in their global stylesheet for accessibility reasons.)

Personally, I'm not particularly fond of the use of :before, etc. either (they should be used for purely decorative purposes - the examples in the article seem to be using them to convey meaning), so what I'm suggesting doesn't really make much sense. :P
