CVS STABLE recognizes CSS style attributes now. AbiWord cannot currently
understand embedded style sheets and doesn't look at external style
sheets, however. On export it will embed style sheets based on the
document styles - although this is buggy at the moment, I think. If you
use CVS HEAD there is a dialog (currently disabled by default) that allows
various export options.
You haven't really answered my question, though. I completely agree that
CSS support is useful and desired, but what I want to know is why you need
CSS *import* specifically... do you just want style="..." attributes to be
understood? or do you want style sheets imported as document styles
(interesting idea)? or do you want embedded/external CSS style sheets to
be parsed and applied to the document (not desired, IMHO)?

Not sure what's wrong with your example, but there's a possibility I've
fixed it in CVS STABLE. Not sure. I'll look into it when I return to the
