While that is true, I think it's also desirable that the reading system has a way to override a book's settings. I'll try removing the text-align from the epub css and putting it in the index.css (to be used only with a web browser)

oeb-page-head is barely defined in the official specs and it's a bad idea anyway. With DE you could display this as a header using their XPGT extension (XSL-FO) but overall, the IDPF need to take a decision regarding paged media. It is a very complex issue though: CSS3 modules are not finalized and Adobe will probably push forward XSL-FO.
At least it says: "The content of an element assigned display: oeb-page-head should be presented only as a header, and the content of an element assigned display: oeb-page-foot should be presented only as a footer. Neither should be simply presented as if it were inline or block.". The underlined part is what all readers I could try are doing.

But by reading again the documentation I found a simpler work-around, just use:

display: none;
display: oeb-page-head;

Systems recognizing "oeb-page-head" would use it, while systems that don't recognize it would ignore it and use "none"... So it seems I don't need the javascript trick for the browsers
