The "we" refers to a discussion several months ago on Emacs devel.  I
believe to remember that Richard then decided that themes should not
override a non-Custom set value.  I could try to find this back in the
archives to be sure that I do not misremember, but if Richard changed
his mind anyway, this is irrelevant.  It is logical to not override a
non-Custom set value, because the user theme is never overridden.

A non-Custom set value is either set by the user, through an explicit
setq or by, say, enabling or disabling a minor mode, or by code that
_needs_ that particular value.  In neither case should a theme
override that.  Doing so would cause trouble.
