I think the broad idea is sensible - it would be nice to have
consistently aesthetic notebooks without having to define styles

With respect to on/off-by-default, I would favour on-by-default,
otherwise hardly anyone will find it, but ideally there would be an
easy way for users to revert notebooks to the current, plain style if
they prefer it.

I see you're using a font from Google's font API in the example. I
think in the default set up, we shouldn't pull in any external
resources, for efficiency and privacy.

Best wishes,
