Jero, you’re right that if you’re generating the CSS at runtime you need to make sure you’re serving it with the correct headers. Depending on circumstance, I think the more common scenario is to generate your CSS when it changes and save that as a static file on the file system.

Just as with any server-side scripting, it’s wasteful to generate the same file again and again when you know it hasn’t changed. The exact same statement applies to generating an HTML document.
