dojox/html/styles should expose a function that cleanly removes style sheet nodes

I think that dojox/html/styles lacks a function that cleanly remove the style sheet nodes that were created dynamically (or not).

Obviously the user can write code such as :

var ssNode = styles.getDynamicStyleSheet(ssName); ssNode && ssNode.parentNode.removeChild(ssNode);

Nevertheless it is not sufficient because dojox/html/styles still hold references (cache) to previously created-or-searched style sheet nodes (vars dynamicStyleMap, pageStyleSheets, titledSheets)

Such a functionality is useful in the context of single-page applications or/and for Destroyable components that own their dynamic stylesheets.

var ssNode = styles.getDynamicStyleSheet(ssName); / / this gets OR CREATEs must be read var ssNode = styles.getStyleSheet(ssName);
