I like to set my sites up so that, as much as possible, things are
do-able from within the wiki -- so that users (appropriately
authorized/authenticated) can configure stuff without having access to
the server, SO I respect your effort to configure global styles from
within wiki pages that are globally displayed.

How about putting your settings (or including something like a
Site.GlobalStylesSettings page) in the site's header instead of its
AllGroupHeader? I don't use the default PmWiki skin, so I'm not
familiar with what elements have what actual names, but I mean the
page that produces the part of the skin that contains the site's logo
and main title.
