Are any of the SMF forks using the Blueprint CSS framework?

I'm not aware of any.

While Blueprint is an awesome framework (I use it on my own sites), I personally don't think the grid system it uses would mesh well with the standard forum layout. It could work if perhaps just the typography parts were used.

Some of my coworkers used to work with that, i have no idea if its good or not but from what i hear it seems to reduce development time, improve browser compatibility. but not used it so have no idea if its really worth it.

I haven't actually implemented with a framework, but there are all sorts of frameworks (and types) out there. Some are intended to help implement a specific grid layout, others are intended to simplify CSS usage (e.g., for typography), some are to make older browsers HTML5/CSS3 compatible, and still others are for "responsive" layout. They use CSS, Javascript, and even PHP modules. I don't know of any that try to do all these things. Perhaps a "mix 'n' match" building block approach could be whipped up? That might be a fun project for someone -- a framework for a framework.

Compass is something like that. It has modules for things like Bootstrap, Compass, 960gs, Susy, etc. You code using SASS so it saves you having to write out full CSS.
