As far as I understood plugin authors don't have to have to use it.

The echo will still work. Those plugins wanting to take advantage of the 
add_css function would use this otherwise they can still use echo.

It's not mandatory to use, although if we want to make it a succes we 
need to make it very much wanted and caching might be a good argument in
