This was discussed years ago on this list.
Don't know if there is a PITS entry for this.
It was suggested to introduce a variable, like
$EnablePmWikiCoreCss, and introduce a pub/cs/pmwiki-core.css

In absence of this I added such a file to my skins FixFlow, Gemini and
Triad, and use a variable in the skin template, $PmWikiCoreStylesFmt,
which will point to the relevant core style sheet, via the following php
code in the skin php file:

# pmwiki core styles get injected into <head> by default
# This disables this injection and loads the styles from core.css file instead
global $HTMLStylesFmt, $PmWikiCoreStylesFmt, $PmWikiCoreCss, $FarmPubDirUrl, $FarmD;
if($EnablePmWikiCoreCss==1) { 
# awaiting pmwiki suport for pmwiki-core.css, $PmWikiCoreCss may need update!
  SDV($PmWikiCoreCss, "pmwiki-core.css");
  if(file_exists("$FarmD/pub/css/$PmWikiCoreCss")) SDV($PmWikiCoreStylesFmt, "
    <link href='$FarmPubDirUrl/css/$PmWikiCoreCss' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />");
    SDV($PmWikiCoreStylesFmt, "
    <link href='$SkinDirUrl/css/pm-core.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />");
   $HTMLStylesFmt['pmwiki'] = '';
   $HTMLStylesFmt['diff'] = '';
   $HTMLStylesFmt['simuledit'] = '';
   $HTMLStylesFmt['markup'] = '';
   $HTMLStylesFmt['urlapprove'] = '';
   $HTMLStylesFmt['vardoc'] = '';
   $HTMLStylesFmt['wikistyles']= '';
