you are correct.  The reason the ka-Map sample page has its styles in 
the page are:

1) lazyness
2) browser caching during develop/test cycles

But for any real app, you would put css in a separate file so it can be 
easily reused/swapped out.  In fact, the rest of the js should go in a 
separate file too, and both css and js could then be cached by the 
client, making return trips that much lighter to load.
