It sounds to me that you have to keep all your css in a single stylesheet, with the media queries in order.
Of course not, no one restricts you to the number of actual css files. It’s just a rule that if you have media-queries in css file, they should be grouped at the bottom.
Yeah I get that, what I meant was that the main stylesheet will need its relevant media queries in the same stylesheet, which means that under the guidelines the responsiveness can’t be easily removed from the DOM with JS, unless a different approach (@import) is used or there’s a nice little trick with JS that I am unaware of :)
You don’t have to do it like that.

Instead, have one separate css file for all responsive queries in your theme (could be little harder if you use css frameworks like bootstrap). That way it’s super easy to control things.

No no no. I will not make responsive optional as long as the item title clearly states “Responsive”. Period.

I can’t believe it’s only me who sometimes prefers to view the full sites even on my phone. I’ve a Galaxy SII (big screen but not huge as other modern devices) and it’s so easy to tap+zoom+drag on real sites. For example, i hate newspapers mobiles sites, i just want a full site navigation to have the same experience as on desktop.

1 column of a huuuge scrolling page seems to be the solution for every site on mobile lately, and that’s a very simple approach to the whole thing, imho.

Just put a button at the bottom that says “This site’s responsive experience is terrible because the designer failed, but it didn’t have to be that way. Take me to the desktop site.”

That way users will accept that you didn’t know what you were doing without reinforcing the myth that a mobile experience means stripped accessibility, features, and content.

Yep this would do the job :)
