Preventing CSS Files From Getting Cached

I have been looking at this today and i have a question about this. Why would this be a bad idea to do the above? I mean the browser still caches the file and if you dont do a huge amount of updates wouldn't this improve the experience for users?

I mean if you give it a fixed value and not like above with the time() function but instead do something like:

$stylesheets .= "<link type=\"text/css\" rel=\"stylesheet\" href=\"{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/{$page_stylesheet}?vers="001"\" />\n"; 

Looking at this you could probably even make it a plugin to achieve this and simply adjust the number when you need it. After adjusting the css significantly for example.
