Everyone can offer an opinion, but nobody can do so based on realistic
empirical data, as no such data exists.  It is basically a question of
intuition how popular themes are going to be, and what they will be
used for.  

Your scheme won't integrate cleanly with customize (the option will be
marked "rogue", i.e. "option is changed outside customize"), which is
my major emotional problem with it.  It will make customize less
useful than now, when another major customization feature doesn't
"play nice" with it.

I did so too, at least the Lisp part.  I remember writing ChangeLogs
for them once.

Unrelated to what is best, having different schemes for Emacs and
XEmacs is certainly going to make them both much less useful.
Especially for cross-platform packages like Gnus.

But as I said before, if nobody is actually going to do the work of
integrating Jan's themes in GNU Emacs, your stuff is better than
nothing.  And since I'm not volunteering (again) and you are, your
opinion should carrry more weight.
