Right.  But distant-foreground is implemented, you proposal is not and does not 
add anything except moving colors to some other place in the defface 
definition.  Also, for a theme that does have a dark and light version, there 
is no guarantee that applying the dark version on the light version (or vice 
versa) is consistent with the theme look.
