No, it's not checked in.  I've just done it locally so that I could 
experiment.  I did look to see if the gnucash install directory was available 
to scm, so that somewhere in INSTALL_DIR/share, I could put a dummy 
reports.css that the user could modify but didn't follow through with this.

There is a WEBKIT_WEB_SETTINGS gobject which, according to 1.0.1 code, allows 
you to set lots of default values.  We would need to connect that to gconf.  
Available settings:
struct _WebKitWebSettingsPrivate {
    gchar* default_encoding;
    gchar* cursive_font_family;
    gchar* default_font_family;
    gchar* fantasy_font_family;
    gchar* monospace_font_family;
    gchar* sans_serif_font_family;
    gchar* serif_font_family;
    guint default_font_size;
    guint default_monospace_font_size;
    guint minimum_font_size;
    guint minimum_logical_font_size;
    gboolean auto_load_images;
    gboolean auto_shrink_images;
    gboolean print_backgrounds;
    gboolean enable_scripts;
    gboolean enable_plugins;
    gboolean resizable_text_areas;
    gchar* user_stylesheet_uri;
    gfloat zoom_step;
