'style' or 'css' dataType in $.ajax().

If there was a 'style' or 'css' dataType in $.ajax(), it would be simpler to dynamically load CSS stylesheets. It would do something like:

$('head').append($('<link rel="stylesheet" href="' + url + '" type="text/css" media="screen">'));

The problem with adding more functionality to $.ajax() is that people would expect it to be compatible with the dozens of options supported there. That is a tall order.

I'd suggest this start as a plugin or $.ajax extension outside core and be incorporated once the need is demonstrated and the problems are worked out.

Just use the code you've proposed there if it's good for your needs.
