Why not just put empty selector blocks in style.css, with a comment 
noting the actual @include file which contains the real, fleshed-out rules?


  .wp-caption { /* see: gallery.css */ }

  .wp-caption {
     background-color: #eee;
     padding: 6px;
     margin: 0 0 4px 0;
     text-align: center;
     /* ...etc... */
