I agree with the logic of comment #9, but these are public settings that can
contain arbitrary text, so they're somewhat different.  Also, if we whitelist
User:Foo/*.{css,js}, then they could just create unlimited pages and admins
would be unable to stop them.  Currently admins can shut up abusive blocked
users by protecting only their user talk page, and this would make that more
difficult or impossible.

Overall, the idea is nice, but I don't think this feature is worth the
complications it would cause.  If a blocked user really wants custom CSS/JS,
they can use their browser's support of that, if applicable.  Or maybe create a
new account to view with and not use it to edit, if possible.  Or ask an admin,
as Happy-melon says.  I don't think we need to go to great lengths to make this
possible.  So I agree with WONTFIX.
